Yahoo and other providers were hacked of information: Meaning that the info was not taken from individual computers.
My Yahoo account information was hacked...Sorry
Apparently it was sent out with a bogus: HEY name: MSNBC link.
I keep an updated Security suite on my computer and it did not help on this one. Funny, I had just run the update when i logged on.
The bogus was an outside attempt using data from the Yahoo files on their servers, and maybe other providers.

I doubt it has anything to do with Linux or a personal computer. I think hes talking about yahoo servers.
