      There's been evidence of retaliation by Yahoo for the consumer complaints I've had to lodge as a
      result of all this too.

      I figured it was site wide when I checked my Yahoo email last night and all my contacts got the same spam emails I've been getting from others with Yahoo. For me it was one friend and my two alternate emails that's all that is in my contacts for that account.
       
      Hopefully they'll get the mess cleaned up soon.

      Yes, I did get hit. Am hearing reports of this all over Yahoo. And I'm down the rabbit hole with them, complaints filed with the DCA in California, the BBB there in Silicon Valley, and the FTC, who apparently from the speech pattern of the agent there knows this is a big issue. Can't send from my account but can read mail.

      Most of the spam URLs, when parsed out, go to fraudulent websites, a few have been reported to link to pornography. They can be parsed without ever clicking on them by inputting them into a couple of websites and content filter provider tools that uncover a cloaked URL and tell you where it eventually goes.

      And in both cases, the hacker 'self-reported' his spam, as the links have reportedly gone dead a short time after he spammed them out.
