Hackers target Yahoo users in Singapore: SingCert

 
 

Yahoo users in Singapore have been warned about spam e-mail that could leave them vulnerable to attacks by hackers.

A government information watchdog has advised them not to click on the links in these messages - even those that are supposedly sent by friends.

The warning was issued last Friday in a bulletin on the website of the Singapore Computer Emergency Response Team (SingCert).

It said that there have been reports of spam e-mail from Yahoo accounts containing links to sites selling "work-from-home" schemes and packages.
