Hallo guys,

I am getting into a big trouble. Whenever I logged into my Yahoo Mail Account, there is a pop-up window asking to accept Terms of Service of new Yahoo! Mail. Every time I hit “I Accept” or “No, Thanks” button on the pop-up window, the same page refresh and come up again and again. As a result I can’t access my mails. Is it a glitch from yahoo mail? Please help…. Please write back if any more info needed.

I have attached a screenshot of that page.

Thanks,

Novojit :wacko:

Hi Everybody,

According to Yahoo! Customer Care, my account was compromised and they asked to change password through a guided procedure...problem solved.

PROBLEM: Clicking on the thumbnail picture opened a new tab in browser (firefox 5.0) showing announcement of some adult sexual content, unrelated to the posting topic of the Yahoo account. I used Cntl+Alt+Del to close the browser, and then reopened the browser and the same adult sexual website opened again.

I then tried full scan with Norton Internet Security, Quick scan with Malwarebytes, found no infections. I next cleared I.E. 8 cookies and browser cache (not expected to be related), took computer off the internet, cleared all history and browser cash in Firefox. Now no problem when opening Firefox.

I really wanted to have a good look at your screenshot. Novo, something is wrong with the link to your picture about your Yahoo Mail account difficulty. Upon opening a fresh instance of Firefox, one of the reported "sessions" to choose to reopen was for "Image Rise-Untitled.jpg".

That really is a suspicious file or image in the posting.

(Here, Windows XP s.p. 3, Firefox 5.0, N.I.S. 2011, Malwarebytes 1.5..).

Just an advisory of potential adult content from the hosting site. Nothing nefarious on the hosted image. Same identical advisory on all four browsers on my machine.

The advisory about the sexual content was not the problem; it was the page that kept coming up when I clicked through the advisory. The page under the advisory announcement did not look anything like the thumbnail image in the post. I'm afraid to take another chance to view the image referenced in the post by Novo. The page was a big, red screen, no display or mention of any Yahoo material.

I tested again on 3 different computers from two different cities with two different ISP's and came up with the advisory bar and the image that is shown thumbnailed in the first post. Just as I had before when I stated nothing nefarious. I cannot reproduce your claim.
