Hello,
Hello, this morning June 12th 09, @ approximately 2am I was logging into my Yahoo acct. A pop up 'Literally' BLOCKED ME, saying that i had to pick 2 NEW Security Questions & @ New Passwords before i could go into my Account.
I did so, but it did not require an email address & phone optional, which I gave neither.
Where di this come from since I made no such Request nor did I Initiate this.
Later this morning I recv'd another email telling me this information would be added to my Account, and 'Any Changes that were made I would be notified of'. Pardon me, but isn't that my decision?
I do not understand, and wrote back by way of Reply, saying the same, and that I would be contacting Yahoo Security. The mail came back 'Mailer-Daemon'.
I do not know what I am doing with this, apparently I've received an unwanted gift, and ask for any help or advice.Is Yahoo actually requiring TWO PASSWORDS, and for what?
Below is a copy of the mail I recv'd this morning.
I appreciate any & all help I can get, as you know by now, I am not as proficient here as most of you.
Copy below

hi,

this may be a security procedure from Yahoo.

or this may also be a spyware.

do not reveal any of your passwords.
