Does yahoo mail have a virus?

  puzzled2 12:51 27 Dec 2009


I have avast! anti-virus and use yahoo web mail. Today it tells me on logging in that there's a virus and advises me to abort the connection which I've done. I didn't open any emails or even look at my inbox, this happened on logging in. Everything was fine yesterday!

Malware name: HTML:Iframe-inf

It also tells me that it's blocked access to a malicious site.

No problems with Yahoo mail from early today... using Vista's own firewall and MSE.

thanks provider2, and I've fixed my yahoo mail so panic over (I hope) - it just goes to login page now and asks for ID and password. phew.
in future must think before I post

No problem except, of course, for Avast and Yahoo but this yieldmanager thing is the cause of some understandable confusion.
