LXer: Pidgin and Kopete Back to Chatting with Yahoo! Again

Published at LXer:

The middle of June, Yahoo! introduced a small change to its user login protocol that practically barred access from all Linux clients. IM services Pidgin and Kopete were hit and responded quickly. To protect its users from phishing scams, Yahoo! changed its login authentication protocol, as they announced June 16. The new protocol expected a specific authentication method version on the client end and refused access if it didn't match. IM services Pidgin and Kopete were recently affected by this.
