Default Sophisticated phishing targets Yahoo users

Yahoo users are being targeted by a new phishing method. Their user name and password are recorded while being logged into a real section of Yahoo.

Users receive instant messages that they believe are from friends. There is a link to a phishing site in the message. It records the username and password and then sends the user to the real section on Yahoo that they wanted.

There are more details in this article http://www.infoworld.com/article/05/...ngyahoo_1.html
