EFF: Don't use the new AOL Instant Messenger

The Electronic Frontier Foundation advises AOL Instant Messenger users not to switch to the new version of the software because it "introduces important privacy-unfriendly features".

Two particular features trouble the foundation are the text message scanning for included links and the logging of two-months-worth (or even more) of conversations on AOL servers.
