Yahoo Mail Users Hit By Widespread Hacking, XSS Exploit Seemingly To Blame

Anonymous Coward writes | about 2 years ago

Yahoo! 0

An anonymous reader writes "Late last night reports started coming in suggesting that Yahoo Mail users have had their accounts hacked. While “hacked” is a very broad term nowadays, it does appear that Yahoo email accounts are being compromised after users click on a malicious link they receive in their inboxes. A bit of digging shows the attack seems to have been carried out by a lone hacker by the name Shahin Ramezany. He has uploaded a video to YouTube demonstrating how to compromise a Yahoo account by leveraging a DOM-Based XSS vulnerability that is exploitable in all major browsers."
