Yahoo Messenger hit by phishing attack

Posted on Saturday, March 26 2005 @ 20:01:02 CET by


Yahoo Messenger is under attack by phishers - victims get links that appear to come from people in their contact list. But when they click on the link they will receive a site that looks like a Yahoo website, but in fact it is a malicious website designed to steal user information such as their login name and passwords.

The Yahoo Messenger phishing attack is caused by a worm that first steals buddy-list information and then sends out messages. Victims are tricked to believe that the messages come from their buddies.

Hey, my name's Chanda and I've gotten hit by this. Thankfully Yahoo is being a bit helpful with this whole thing. I was angry they got me, but I wasn't able to warn my friends in time to stop them from getting hit by it, too. And THAT is what pissed me off evern more. If I ever find out where these punks live, they better RUN. Grrrr!!! Thanks - Chanda (chanda@chandajane.com)
