Millions of Yahoo Mail accounts vulnerable to email hijacking

Beware Yahoo Mail Account holders!!

An internet hacker has offered to sell code that will allow a person to hijack Yahoo email accounts.

The hacker, said to be an Egyptian who goes by the username TheHell, has offered an exploit for the price of $700 on an underground cyber crime community called Darkode.

It works when AN unsuspecting email user clicks on a malicious hyperlink, sent in an email. By clicking on the link they unwittingly allow a cyber attacker access to their Yahoo Mail account.

The mastermind of the attack said the exploit would only be sold to a small group of 'trusted people' to prevent it from being patched or modified to fix the bug.
