Malware Attack Hits Yahoo Users

Malware Attack Hits Yahoo Users | Cyber security | Scoop.it

Hackers have caused Yahoo's advertising servers to distribute malware to hundreds of thousands of users since late last month, according to two Internet security companies.

"Clients visiting yahoo.com received advertisements served by ads.yahoo.com. Some of the advertisements are malicious," Fox IT, a Netherlands-based security firm, said in a blog post  quoted by The Washington Post.

Instead of providing regular ads to users, the Yahoo servers reportedly send an "exploit kit" that "exploits vulnerabilities in Java and installs a host of different malware," the Post reports.

In addition, Ashkan Soltani, a security researcher and Post contributor, told the newspaper that such attacks are "the result of hacking an existing ad network."

It could also stem from hackers submitting the malicious software as ordinary advertisements, circumventing Yahoo's system for filtering out malicious ones, Soltani told the Post.
