This is a well known Yahoo E-Mail hack which was the result of a theft of about 500,000 Yahoo e-mail accounts including passwords. You can Google it for details.


If you have an Yahoo account you should immediately change your Yahoo password, this will prevent the problem...at least until another break in!

Ron, AE5E
