Is there's any way to find out who the culprit is? I think someone is trying to brute forcing my Yahoo account because I stumbled upon this when I tried to log in to my Yahoo account:

You have exceeded the maximum number of Sign In tries for the Yahoo! ID eedoon. As a result, the account has been temporarily locked for your security.

You can wait 12 hours before trying to sign in again. If you have forgotten your password, you can request a new one by confirming your account information. Once you have received a new password you will be able to sign in again after 12 hours.

I know the attempt failed, but it's really annoying anyway. :mad: :mad:

That's possible.

It also could be some computer-inept person who has an account similar to yours butchering their login name and ended up invoking the the max attempt for your account.

In any case it's a PITA.
