Yahoo password hijacking & email spamming
Yahoo seems to be plagued with problems of late.
After my Hotmail account getting a rouge email from a family member, which contained a malicious web link. Today, another appears from my other-halfs Yahoo account when she wasn't even logged on!
A quick read of resolutions, advised resetting password to much more complex, number, letter and symbol combination. Setting up a sign-in seal, (from account settings) and trying to set a 'second sign-in' conformation, which sends a code to a mobile number you enter and also alerts you if someone signs in to your account using a non-verified device. Sadly, the initial text msg never worked so it ain't active.
BUT - checking the login activity log via the same account settings page showed a login this morning from bloody Romania!!!
Be careful with / of any odd Yahoo mail
