Ummm, I don't like the idea of sending my Yahoo password through some unknown server in China submitted by an anonymous Internet dude. That just seems spectacularly foolish to me.

And even worse, the link provided appears to have been disabled by the hosting provider. This stinks of treachery....

Come on people, learn to use a bug tracker.

And for this stuff: I don't know how well the obfuscation in the old auth. mechanism worked but if it's based on a proper irreversible hash (and AFAIK it is) with a challenge there's little abuse one could perform using the alternative server. Even replays won't work anymore since none of the Yahoo! servers will give a useful session using that mechanism anymore.
