Do you have a Yahoo account?

If you do you should read this article.


A festering flaw left unpatched on Yahoo's website may be the reason you've been getting an unusual amount of spam from friends' accounts lately.

The complicated, crafty process takes several steps, but works almost instantly. It ends up with bad guys in Eastern Europe nabbing Yahoo Mail accounts.

Yes I have a few Yahoo email accounts. Luckily I never do the "stay logged in thing" but have been noticing more spam than usual. And that Twit hack the other day supposedly came from China, boy, the US is a prize target for hackers mostly from abroad.

I believe the use of Noscript has helped many times.
