    According to security firm Trend Micro, Gmail isn't the only email service under attack, with Yahoo and Hotmail/Live users seeing some of the same issues that Google's users have in recent weeks.


    Google claimed the attacks on its service, mainly to steal account details and emails of prominent US government officials, Chinese political activists and journalists came from China.

    It is unclear whether the attacks on the other major email services came from China, as well.

    Google contained the phishing campaign, accounts had their security beefed up and the authorities were notified.

    The attacks on Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail showed "significant similarities," to the Google attacks, notes Trend Micro in its report.

    While the attack on Yahoo seemed a run-of-the-mill attack to steal cookies, the Hotmail attack was much more malicious.

    Says Trend(via IBT):

    this is one time I am NOT glad I download my emails, but I can always delete suspicious emails before I import them into Thunderbird.

    And this is why I only preview emails if they have meaningful subjects and aren't from myself.

    This whole hacking thing is a fad, just like Apple products and 15 year old girls getting preggers.

    I think Yahoo is fixing the problem since you can't log in to Yahoo Mail but Hotmail is still up so be careful.

    I told you and everyone who read my previous posts, this is the build-up to 2012, the Mayans actually predicted that the Internet will die down on 21st December 2012 due to excessive cyber attacks & crimes, since they were too un-educated in those times and the Internet didn't exist in those days, they ended up speaking out the first word that came to their mind...."Earth" [​IMG]

    On a side note, Jai McDowall just won Britains Got Talent 2011!!! SWEETT!! My favorite he was!

    My yahoo mail account is my "spammy" email anyway. I'm not all that worried about it.
