    This is happening quite often these days. Yahoo mail do have support for Yahoo mail free users. If you have Yahoo mail plus account, you can directly speak via phone. However for yahoo free users, you can email such issues.
    Here is the link..

    All the best harish and utkarsh.

    it was bound to happen when individuals do not take security seriously....
    stupid password containing birth dates,names of family members.GFs etc.are the main reason for hacks...
    goto tutorials section and read a thread named..."TO PROTECT YOUR FROM BEING HACKED PASSWORDS READ THIS"

    this is a common problem because often u click spam messages in ur inbox.. yahoo has now started a way by which u can keep any known picture at the login page. so when ever u put password next time do remember to see that pic else the page is faked...
    i my self has suffered the problem and i got the answer with a little investigation

    Hi Harish, you need to relax first. Yes, there are softwares by the help of which you can trace out the IP address of the PC from where your id was hacked and then trace the route accordingly, but you'll have to hunt for their names on google.I think one goes by the name of neo trace or net trace something like that.
