Yesterday I got an E-Mail from "Yahoo!" and it contaned a Virus. Luckaly the E-Mail system that I've got has a virus thingy that can quarinte the virus. But I had to download it so...
Just if you get an E-Mail from Yahoo, if you have not ordered eney thing from there and you are not expecting any thing from them. DO NOT OPEN IT!!!

why would yahoo want to send a virus?

There not, someone has infected them with a virus that sends it out to others. That's how it some times works.

It most likely is someone posing as Yahoo! to make you want to open it.

So you're saying that if you have a virus scanner (updated every week or so) that you're A-OK? Nothing to worry about then, right?
