    Default WARNING: Yahoo bookmarks hijacked

    Just noticed today that my bookmarks for "My Yahoo" have been hijacked.

    The links were changed to something similar to the following:

    Code:
    http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com ..........
    I deleted all my "Yahoo" bookmarks used in various browsers and re-bookmarked them as follows:

    Code:
    https://my.yahoo.com/
    I have no idea how long ago it occurred.

    There were warnings to change your password when Yahoo was hacked some time ago.

    These were the "Bookmarks" in my browsers, not my Yahoo.

    It was likley something you updated or installed recently that added this for you.

    Always watch out for small check-boxes and such at the bottom of the installation dialog box.

    Java updates are a good example of this...

    Then it has to do with browser settings and not Yahoo.
