If youve been hacked on yahoo best thing to do is get up to date with all your security patches and install a decent firewal Im assuming your using windows so run windows update for the patches and install outpost for your firewall.

That should be enough because there all script kiddies on yahoo they couldnt hack there way into a paper bag unless the hole has already been made so your IP is of little use to them as long as you keep up to date with patches, but then again you do have to rely on M$ to supply them.
