for those of you like me who use trillian - the following may be useful.

On Thursday, Yahoo changed their protocol in an effort to prevent spammers. As a result, Trillian's connectivity is also affected. You may get a crash in Yahoo.dll or an Invalid Login error when connecting to the Yahoo Messenger network. Cerulean Studios is working on a solution for this problem and will post an update here when a fix is available.
If Trillian crashes when you load it, preventing you from shutting off your Yahoo autoconnect, follow these steps:

Close Trillian. Locate your Yahoo.ini file. Press Windows-F or click your Start Button then Search -> All files and folders -> Yahoo.ini. If you can't find it this way, look in C:\Program Files\Trillian\Users\Default or the Trillian Settings directory under your current user's C:\Documents and Settings folder.

Edit the file by double-clicking or opening it in Notepad. Replace all occurences of "auto connect=1" with "auto connect=0" and save the file. Now reload Trillian and it won't try to autoconnect to Yahoo, which causes the crash.

We will post an update as soon as one is available.
