...where AES will somehow be a valid value for both mode and algorithm (which will silently override to "NULL" if plaintext starts with a zero or the letter "p").
Bad time to remember that you used firstname.lastname@example.org as the recovery account for email@example.com, which is the recovery account you used when you signed up for Gmail so many years ago and then forgot about.
I linked this elsewhere, but again to make sure it gets seen: yes, purge your account of all data, but don't delete it because Yahoo reserves the right to give your old address so someone else.
Yahoo re-issues email addresses after they've been deleted. Are you absolutely 100% certain you haven't used that account as the password reset address for anything else?

Actually, '1' in EBCDIC is 0xF1.
But it wasn't illegals he disallowed in to the country, but also people that were legally allowed in to the USA. An example, those with green cards.
