Yahoo Mail Delivering Trojans?

March 18, 2008 – 10:09 AM

I’m not sure if this is an isolated incident or another mass attack through third party advertising like what had happened with Facebook a while back, but the folks over at are reporting a case where one of their users was browsing their Yahoo Mail account and got hit with an avast! warning about an HTML:Roguelframe trojan installation.  Here’s the screenshot that was posted:

Hopefully this was just a one-off incident but I’ll be keeping my eyes and ears open for more reports of this behavior.

Note to self: Do not trust third party code.  Ever.

  3. The same message? I haven’t heard anything about this since last year after this posting. I figured Yahoo found the problem and fixed it.
