Yahoo and others offer developers API's to use their authentication for various things. For example ebuddy.net let's you log into MASN, Yahoo, and AIM messengers online with the accounts you already have for those IM's and you see all the same contacts, etc. They are using the API's provided by those companies.So it doesn't necessarily mean that Yahoo is associated in any way witht hat site. You still need to be careful when giving out that information.
