Phishers target Yahoo Users

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 10:37 am

Yahoo confirmed Thursday that their service, Yahoo Messenger, was being targeted by a scam. Attackers are sending members a message–seemingly from someone on their friends list–that contains a link to a fake Web site. This fake site looks like an official Yahoo site and asks the user to log in by entering a Yahoo ID and password. If this data is entered, the attackers can gain access to any personal information stored in their profile, including their contact list and IM friends list
