Hmmm. Is this the same Yahoo! that also isn't aware that they
are unwittingly hosting hundreds of phishing sites?

Sorry for the extremety of my blunt response, but I have two things to say:

1. How the fuck do YOU know any more than they do? Just because you
obsess over the security factors around a company with which you have
no affiliation does not put you in any greater authority to make
statements like those you made there.

I heard it from the horses mouth. Yahoo don't acknowledge the same
stats that IMLogic report on, and Yahoo say IMLogic's findings don't
match that of Yahoo's own stats of their network.

IMLogic can report on something and claim a worm is attacking, but
when Yahoo's people go and look at their network, nothing is actually
taking place!

How many malicious messages do IMLogic record, before they decide
theres a wide spread attack? Thats my question, because even with
reports of worms on Yahoo, none have been seen by Yahoo or users..
