Spammers hijack Yahoo Xtra email accounts

Like me, you may have received a few emails from various people over the weekend with suspect looking links in them. has revealed that “New Zealanders have come under attack from savvy spammers over the weekend, with hundreds of Kiwi email accounts breached in a suspected phishing issue.”

It always pays to be vigilant with links that show up in your inbox, even if they appear to be from trusted sources. A tip is to look who the email was also sent to, if it’s a big list of contacts you don’t recognise then it’s more than likely dodgy. Alternatively, if no recepients are specifed then it’s also likely dodgy.
