Same old routine, do NOT click on that link!



Paul (and anyone who clicked that link) needs to run a full anti-virus and

malware scan and change their Yahoo and email passwords.

Hi Chris,

That was an obvious virus.

I just don.t understand why Yahoo hasn.t caught onto this scam, after probably a year. I would have thought that one of their filters would look for the obvious . a message, with no text, often no subject, just a link. Such emails should either be immediately trashed, or isolated for the moderators to handle, rather than letting such garbage through, into the group.

I hope everyone here is discriminating enough to recognize this trap. I mean, if you saw a grenade lying on the sidewalk would you pull its pin, just to see if it still works ;-)

You will notice that this particular exploit is morphing. Originally there

wasn't any subject and later the sender's name was used as the subject and

now a time/date is used as a subject. I conclude that this is being done to

avoid the usual simple, brute-force methods of blocking the emails of this

particular exploit.



In the past Yahoo hasn't been very good at reacting quickly to morphing

exploits. And half of the blame goes to the various vulnerable web browsers

and probably some blame goes to Java as well.



I do know that Yahoo has believed that they have stopped this particular

exploit twice already, according to their own news reports.



Hopefully Yahoo figures out a better/smarter way to stop it's propagation

soon.
