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

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
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."
