I doubt you have been hacked but you may have picked up some malware. If you believe this is a possibility then start a topic in the 'Am I infected?' section of BC, but, if you do, please give rather more information than you did here. Make and model plus your OS and which variant of it at a minimum.

 

As for 's.yimg' see this discussion on BC -

Take a look at this link - it is a sub domain of s.yimg.com and it is labeled Yahoo on the page. Dont worry its just the search engine. http://s.yimg.com/rq/darla
