"The patch, first posted to the Web late Thursday, repairs a security hole stemming from Yahoo Messenger's use of the portable network graphics--or PNG--format, an open-source code the program uses to display certain images, such as buddy list avatars."

A few months ago, I was in Yahoo Mess. I had Smiley Central then. We were using the smileys. Family smileys ( Motherhood and family etc. ) When in the search box. Someone typed( Not us!) ..."That is fine , but we need war" Needless to say it freaked me out. Smiley Central is gone!!!
