      There has been an increasing problem with Yahoo Mail accounts being
      hijacked. There are a few simple rules to help minimize this problem.

      The first of course is not using Yahoo Mail. All of these come
      from Yahoo Mail accounts.

      The problem appears to occur when you click one of these links
      while logged onto your Yahoo Mail account.
      Do NOT click any links that do not have sensible supporting
      text. That is to say text that was obviously
      written by the guy who supposedly sent the Email, and describes
      what he is sending and how it is relevant
      to the group discussion.

      If you are infected, log onto your Yahoo account and change the
      password.

      If you see an infected message, note that it originates from a
      Yahoo mail account (they all do), and notify the
      "sender" privately and tell him to change his password.

      WRITE YAHOO TECH SUPPORT AND COMPLAIN. We need to deluge them
      with complaints to "encourage" them to fix the problem
      which is a security issue with Yahoo Mail. It's time to raise cain!!
      This problem has gone on far too long!
