BBAuth API login stopped working

We have a service that requires logging in through the BBAuth API. We've used the same request for about 2 years and it has worked perfectly up until about a week ago. We've had users complain that the authentication is no longer working... has anything changed? I checked the documentation but nothing has changed on the request so technically our request should still be valid. Is anyone else having this problem?

Here is a sample request (with data redacted):

https://api.login.yahoo.com/WSLogin/V1/wslogin?appid=[appid]&appdata=[appdata]&ts=[timestamp]&sig=[hashedsig]

Following this:

    Following the format in my above when you issue the request it no longer authorizes properly and are routed away.

    I discovered the problem, the response changed slightly and we didn't notice right away. Thanks for taking the time to look into this.
