Yahoo Users Infected By Virus


(Sunnyvale, CA) An internet security firm says tens of thousands of Yahoo users, mostly in Europe, may have been infected by a virus spread by advertisements.

Yahoo says the ads that spread malware were posted Friday.

Malware is software that disrupts a computer’s operations or gathers sensitive information.

Yahoo says users of Mac computers and mobile devices were not affected.

    So what will Yahoo offer as a fix for this problem? Having your computer scaaned and thre virus removed is costly, bith in $$ and data that you may want to save.
