Alafia fambly,

Today I received two emails masquerading as yahoo.com alerts. One told me I had updated my password and to click on an attachment to confirm it. The other one told me my account was sending out spam and if I didn't fill out the attachment my account would be suspended.

Fortunately yahoo was able to detect the virus in those attachments but they warned that not all viruses could be detected. So if you receive an email claiming to be from yahoo telling you you did something you know you didn't do be suspicious. Ask yourself the question why does yaoo need to use attachments?
