    Has anyone been having any issues with Yahoo IM? Today I got a message that said "hey" from five people on my buddy list (virtually all at the same time). Many of those people I hardly ever talk to. I responded to two, got no answer, and they all signed off at the same time.

    Happening to anyone else?

    Yeah happened to me too... it's spam, they hacked into the accounts of those people and the IQ test crap is all about signing up for a cell phone service.... don't respond to it and change your password, so your own account won't be compromised

    So I should change my password since I responded to the IM? I didn't click on any links or anything.
