|Summary||Yahoo! remote crash from incorrect character encoding|
|Discovered By||Thijs Alkemade and Robert Vehse|
|Fixed In Release||2.10.8|
Many places in the Yahoo! protocol plugin assumed incoming strings were UTF-8 and failed to transcode from non-UTF-8 encodings. This can lead to a crash when receiving strings that aren’t UTF-8.
Depending on the context, either validate that a string is UTF-8 or transcode the string from the appropriate encoding to UTF-8.
