"Yahoo's free instant-messaging service is being
targeted by phishers attempting to steal usernames,
passwords and other personal information."

"Yahoo confirmed Thursday that its service, Yahoo
Messenger, was being targeted by a scam. According
to the company, attackers are sending members a
message containing a link to a fake Web site. The
fake site looks like an official Yahoo site and
asks the user to log in by entering a Yahoo ID
and password."
