Yahoo Emails Smell Fairly Phishy

from the you-would-think-they'd-know-by-now dept

ZaneK writes “According to trimMail’s Email Battles, Yahoo Search Marketing is pumping out messages that are actually phishier than those sent by the real phishers who send messages in Yahoo’s name. A dissection of Yahoo’s apparently legit mail actually yields a pretty comprehensive clinic on how to start an illegal phishing scheme.” A year ago, we noted that many banks still sent out phish-like emails, but you would think that a company like Yahoo would have realized not to do this long ago.
