    I just got this email (in my Yahoo Inbox)

    the email address is from "mail@yahoo.com"

    "Dear Yahoo Member,

    Your e-mail account was used to send a huge amount of unsolicited spam messages during the recent week. If you could please take 5-10 minutes out of your online experience and confirm the attached document so you will not run into any future problems with the online service.

    If you choose to ignore our request, you leave us no choice but to cancel your membership.

    Virtually yours,

    There is an attachment

    File name: readme.zip
    File size: 92kb
    File type: application/octet-stream

    I know that most virus' are in zips, but usually Yahoo picks them up and puts them in my Spam folder. And the return email address is mail@yahoo...



    I dunno, I deleted it and reported it to them and we'll see what they say





    thanks y0

    No acutal legit email from Yahoo would contain an attachment.

    Not hard to make any address look different. Place your mouse over the link and see where it directs to (displayed at the bottom of the window on left).
