Yahoo?? Right uh….
YAHOO has been a little under the weather this week, as Netcraft exposed a vulnerability on its site leaving users account details open to attack.
Unfortunately for Yahoo, Netcraft wasn’t the only one who noticed this – the HotJobs section of the site was being used to transmit stolen details, sent to a remote hacker in the US.
This hacker was happily gathering Yahoo users’ account details enabling access into Yahoo Mail – the user doesn’t even need to type in their user name and password for the hacker to accomplish this, visiting the malign URLs on yahoo.com can be enough.
