I try to annonymous it.
I do it in virtualbox with only yahoo messenger because i have a lot of acount (XMPP, MSN, ...) and the log will be very big and have a lot of personnal data.

I see it's writing:
"Account locked: Too many failed login attempts. Logging into the Yahoo! website may fix this."
 But i go to yahoo mail and connect (this day and when i created this bug) and i do nothing. I don't find something about configuration in Yahoo messenger 's tool in the website.
