I need some technical help. A friend had his Yahoo account hacked. Even his security question has been tampered with. It asks (What’s your first born’s name?). Since he does not have any children, he’s flummoxed. The present situation is that he cannot log into his account. Is there any solution for this?

—  This can happen due to several reasons, such as a weak password or a weak answer to the security question set up. In cases like this, there is really no helpdesk you can get to.

Yahoo does have a good helpdesk online that you can access at http://yhoo.it/15eEJDN which tells you on what to do. In this specific case, though, we are not sure if it will help, since it seems the person who hijacked your friend’s account has been smart enough to change a lot of other things.
