My sister uses my computer to talk to people on Yahoo. THe other day, she told me that someone she was talking to started naming song files on my computer that the only way he could see is if he somehow hacked in. I use Zone alarm free ware and Norton anti virus 2003 to protect my computer. I am assuming it's through Yahoo chat that he is gaining access. How is he doing this and how do I prevent little creeps like that gaining access? I have uninstalled Yahoo chat in the meantime. Cheers.

Hi,

File sharing may have been enabled. Others would have access to that folder.

or

Someone found a way to exploit a hole in Yahoo Messenger. Do a search for "yahoo messenger exploits" or something similar (Google found a few...Lips Sealed)
