Yahoo! phishing has mutated


Yahoo! Instant Message phishing attack has apparently mutated in an attempt to steal user credentials and gain access to personal information, reports IMlogic Threat Center. IM.Marphish2.Yahoo, is being broadcast on the Yahoo! Instant messaging network, a mutation from the recent IM.Marphish.Yahoo attack. Users receive an instant message that appears to be from the Yahoo! abuse department.

It informs the user that they are in violation of the Yahoo! Terms of Service Agreement, and that they must respond to this complaint to prevent their account from being deactivated. Yahoo! phishing has mutated - Xatrix Security
