In the vain hope that somebody else has experienced this via their Yahoo! email account, and which I believe has been going on for ages now without Yahoo! appearing to do anything.

To the filthy Russian half wit at IP 37.29.88.136 you are a complete and utter knob who obviously enjoys spamming the world with your communist cow poo.

Now crawl back under your filthy little tissue ridden bed and leave the world in peace.

Thanks.

Rant over.

Oh, and anybody who feels the need to spam this twit back - feel free.

Its a spammer thats been at it for nearly 4 months from a quick look at it, probably just a zombie machine used to pump out spam as much as possible

Correct and its plastered all over places like The Register. Channel 4 also did an investigation into it and Yahoo have done absolutely jack since discovering it. They identified the individual who is well known for this but for some reason they cant bring him to justice.

The filthy urchin gains access by XSS processes without even knowing your password then randomly selects address from your contacts list before sending out garbage. My trace of the access into my account started at 13:00 today via the Yahoo mobile browser in the Netherlands then immediately traced it back to that place in Russia.

This is probably a very good reason to avoid webmail systems and use an email client like Thunderball where all your contacts are stored locally. I don't have any contacts stored on the wrong side of my firewall.

Also I make sure that my online Inbox is kept empty except as mail arrives. Anything I want to keep goes straight onto local storage.

They just randomly select email addresses from people in your inbox and sent items.

I think you are confusing a James Bond film with Thunderbird

...and this ladies and gents is why everyone should have AV. Even if you don't care about your own machine there is a good chance you will wind up causing grief for somebody else whilst it is infected.

So that's what that was. I have an old yahoo account that I never use much, and a month ago suddenly received few a strange emails from it to my main gmail address. I'd guessed someone had hacked the rather simple password on my yahoo account, but an unfixed exploit in the yahoo system sounds equally likely
