E mail hacked was created by phoenix

Once again my yahoo mail account was hijacked and started sending spam. Hopefully this is resolved but apologies to anyone on here who got carp.

Yahoo ticks me off because this is a redundant account but if I delete it then my flick r account goes to so I effectively have to monitor it for no other reason than hijacking.

Mine got hacked a few months ago, just needs a harder password as it seems to attract that kind of attack.
Embarassing isn't it?

Password was 11 digits long. Yahoo have been told about security vulnerabilities but seem to be taking the 'bury the head in the sand' approach. Sent them some fruity feedback.
