yahoo mail keeps getting hacked - Page 4

post #31 of 64
I know this has really no input. But the same thing happened to me, even after I changed my password also. I remember the first time it happened, my mom woke me up at like 2 in the morning asking why I was sending her Viagra ads (some Canadian medicine company website I remember), and someone had sent all my email contacts (including my umpire boss, who gives me games to umpire and such) a Viagra ad! Oh joy! After the second time, I deleted the email and switched over to Gmail. I haven't had the same problem since.

It may be something to do with Yahoo, because I haven't seen it happen with any other email provider.

looks good. Make sure older java versions are not install and enable UAC or usedropmy rights. You don't want malware to rip your data because every link that you click on has admin rights. Wrong link it can disable your av and do anything it wants. Use Sandboxie to run your browser in and get add ons like no scripts. Important no scripts create your own white list. Yes its a pain in the beginning but you know what sites you visit that are safe once they whitelisted they don't pop up anymore. It will stop baddies from getting thru your browser

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm somebody is a weeeeee bit paranoid. I turn UAC off every time, though I run 64bit and not many exploits are public (or used I should say). I wouldn't say no scripts, just watch where you go. =S

Don't worry. You should have seen what they were hacking my computer about. Don't even remind me about the services tab in msconfig. All kinds of new random uneeded things.

change your password once and for all and try not to stay signed in. Use an email client possibly to go around using https?

Disable UAC you guys say? Just have a loot at THIS
post #37 of 64
Disabling UAC is the first thing I do also. It's not even remotely a security risk, you're just going to click "okay" if it's some virus you downloaded and try to run either way.

Disabling UAC is like running as Root under Linux - no one in their right mind would do it.

I get it, Windows users, and more importantly, Windows software, isn't used to the idea of having to deal with permissions, so generally, unlike under Linux where you only need to use root permissions where it is 100% needed, under Windows you ge them all the time. That's still not a good reason to disable it. It exists for a reason, and it's worth keeping there as a defence.

That's why I don't use linux, so damn hard to just have everything run as root. . Especially when you want to do something from the GUI that needs admin rights...

Taking this thread off topic here though.

you download a file for it to be a virus. It can be a little piece of java script in a pdf document, a site. Just a small piece of code to rip your browsers cookie.
The first thing malware checks for if you got admin rights and if UAC is enabled. If both are true it will add itself as a service, hide your reg tools disable your av add itself at startup, rootkit, backdoor. Drop files in other directories enable Autorun encrypt its payload. Then it will connect remotely sending all your stuff out on the net. Which all couldve been prevented when some file that was running out some temp folder asked for permission to do it.
