Has AT&T Yahoo! Gone Black Hat?

by Dean Shainin 4 replies
I'm wondering if there is a way to see how this is happening.

Here's what's going on...

Within my AT&T Yahoo! account after checking an email and I hit Mark, the marked button re-directs to a Parent Resource Center and looking at the bottom of the ad, it looks like Phillip Morris.

It does not happen every time but about 7 times within the last few days.

Is someone inside my account or something?

I'm a non-tech guy so it's a mystery to me.

Thanks for any input.

    Dean,

    What exactly do you mean when you say you 'hit the mark button'? The mark button provides you with a drop down box which allows you to choose from several options.

    I tried just clicking on the mark button and nothing happened. I also used all of the options and couldn't get the action you mentioned.

    However, AT&T made some changes to overall email in the past few days. And I did find that some of my settings are different or no longer available. Check your setting under personal email preferences to see if everything is the same.

      What is AT&T Yahoo! account? I am confused. Is it you are checking into Yahoo mail using ATT internet service? Sorry I am just guessing.

      Yes, that's the button I'm talking about. It usually drops down and gives you options but have been noticing it re-directs to that ad.

      O.K. Maybe it's related to the changes or something.

      I just realized I should run Ad-Adware to see if anything in running in the background for now.

      Thanks for your input...
