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): [/p] source 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.
