Yahoo blocks Trillian users

— 12:28 PM on September 26, 2003

IM giant Yahoo has started blocking third party messaging apps like Trillian from using its network. Trillian's creators, Cerulean Studios, are working on the issue, but it doesn't look like Yahoo will be cooperating:

"If this has affected the way in which third parties interact with our service, it is merely a byproduct of our efforts to implement preventative measures to protect our users from potential spammers," said Yahoo spokeswoman Mary Osako.
Let's hope that Cerulean Studios can come up with a fix.
