Invalid ID or password.
Please try again using your full Yahoo! ID, and type the text you see in the picture below.

I try to recover the user name or the password it ask for the
My Yahoo! ID is:
I enter the email id on the next step it is asking where is your mother born. As far i remember i don't add such a question when i created the account. As the person that hacked the account has change all these. Now how can i recover my account?

Now as i enter the password many time wrong the account is locked for 12hrs
Sorry, this account is temporarily locked
This account has been temporarily locked because of security concerns
The lock on your account will expire in approximately 12 hours—the lockout period will not reset each time you attempt to sign in while the account is still locked. You can try to recover your password again after the lock has expired. See you after 12 hrs!

Note:As i know the first two digit of ip address when the the account is created will this help in the recovery of my account?
