A malware attack hit Yahoo's advertising server over the last few days, affecting thousands of users in various countries, an Internet security firm said.In a blog post, Fox-IT said Yahoo's servers were releasing an "exploit kit" that exploited vulnerabilities in Java and installed malware."Clients visiting yahoo.com received advertisements served by ads.yahoo.com," the internet security firm said. "Some of the advertisements are malicious."
Well, for a little meta humor, let's try this search link:[link removed]I do raw yahoo searches out of the Firefox search window, so I'm not sure if that might have avoided the malware even at the theoretical level.
