    1) Try to get his/her account back by going through "Forgot password" routine. Change the password and secret question.
    2) If don't remember the secret answer, contact Yahoo! (very little chance to work)
    3) Learn your lesson not to use silly/easy passwords and never save family photos, that you don't want everyone in the world to see, on internet.

    Well, it looks like some one [personal] who wants to embarass yr friend is doing such work, since no foolish hacker will waste his time on a hacked account creating a geocities page, they mostly look only for ways to earn/steal... So I guess its some one in his friend/other network...

    woah........what a revenge.
    But there is a very liittle chance of getting the p/w back since the hacker must hv changed the DOF and Secret Question(or its ans)

    First try thier feedback method @yahoo.com and write a nice letter, not cr@ppy or unconvincing ones with loads of !!!'s and all, make the letter look professional and demanding. Send it in a couple of times if a bot keeps replying... If still no help then try the help of yahoo.co.in and pester them until they reply personally instead of a bot-like reply... If that too doesnt work, try finding the yahoo india phone nos... If that too doesnt work then here is your last resort. Look into the sidebar and you will know what to do...

    Ps. Thanks to anubhav_har for the link...

    reply

    Do u have that guys email-id?
    If u do then try contacting him again enable Voice chat, try finding his Ip (use netstat).
    Try finding where does he belong
    Take legal action.



    IF everthing fails then apologize and get the new password of ur account from him, Praise him for doing such a gr8 thing, then i am sure that he will remove the photos as well
    the later one is the best option for u?

    I know the first option is useless.
