Are you kidding me? This happened to me today. The source of the problem seems to be Yahoo! Partner's Application. You should see that as the source of your compromised login.

You can disable Yahoo! Partner's Application ability to login by going to Account Info/Manage Apps and Website Connections.

If you remove Yahoo! Partner's Application it will prevent you from being able to access through methods like the Yahoo Android App, but it should also prevent you from getting hacked this way.

I stopped using the yahoo android app because the damn thing was annoying.

Molly.

The hacker of my two accounts came through that Yahoo Partner's Application. But I didn't realize it could be disabled.

It's disabled now!

Thanks!!!

This web site is really a walk-through for all of the info you wanted about this and didn’t know who to ask. Glimpse here, and you’ll definitely discover it.
