Yahoo under attack

I've been hearing stories about yahoo accounts going kerflooey and it appears this may be the reason. There's some new worm that is activated by simply opening the email and reading it. It doesn't require you to click on an additional link in order to become infected. This is why I don't even open emails that come from someone I don't know, even when they slip through the spam filter.

I don't even open emails from some of the people I do know. In fact I don't send or receive nearly as many emails as I once did and that's fine with me.

Good point Patricia. I don't open suspicious looking ones from friends either, especially if they have attachments I'm not expecting.

Unfortunately, I'm on so many lists that I get a ton of mail. I think the saddest thing is I don't send ecards anymore because they started sending viruses disguised as them. You would think the hackers had something better to do.
