By James W. RansomSource Newsweek| December 20, 2018| 06:45:06The Yahoo Finance site, which provides information about corporate finance, is being targeted by spyware, according to a security researcher who has tracked the malware for years.
The malware, known as “Packet Spy,” appears to be part of a wave of spying that has hit Yahoo and other large companies.
The spyware attacks are being aimed at data stored on Yahoo’s cloud servers and used to store user data on the sites’ cloud-based services, including its financial services.
The Yahoo website has long been targeted by the spyware that uses a technique known as reverse shell injection, or RSI, which uses the shell code that the attacker sends through email and a malicious link.
This is a type of attack that attacks a computer by sending commands to a remote server that has administrative privileges and then using a crafted link to take control of the computer.
The attack appears to have hit Yahoo’s website, and the researchers have been able to identify some of the malware in the attack.
The spyware is installed on the Yahoo site by way of an exploit in a PHP script that runs on Yahoo users’ web browsers.
The script then installs a piece of code in the Yahoo browser, and then redirects users to a malicious page.
This malicious page allows an attacker to remotely access an affected user’s computer, and it does this by exploiting a vulnerability in Yahoo’s operating system that allows a remote attacker to execute commands on the user’s machine.
The exploit exploits a weakness in the way that Yahoo’s web browser handles HTTP traffic, and by sending a request to the Yahoo website, the hacker can redirect the user to a website that uses the exploit to perform the attack on the web browser.
The attack then sends the user a crafted HTTP request that redirects them to another malicious page, which sends the attacker back to the user.
The researchers say the exploit appears to target all versions of Yahoo from versions 1.3 through 1.8.
Yahoo released a patch for the exploit on April 30.
The vulnerability is fixed in versions 1:1.8 and 1:2.0.
This vulnerability is not currently being exploited on Yahoo.
Affected Yahoo users should remove the Yahoo Explorer browser extension and the Yahoo Mail extension from their browsers and install the latest version of the Chrome browser.
The vulnerability was first reported in July 2017, and was not patched until January 2018.
Yahoo says it is aware of about 200 different known exploits for the attack, but it doesn’t list the total number of the attacks.
It has not been immediately clear whether the Yahoo attack is connected to the latest NSA leaks.
Yahoo’s parent company, Yahoo Japan, announced earlier this year that it was halting all communications between Yahoo Japan and Yahoo.
In response, the company introduced new privacy policies that required users to consent to data collection.
