  1. Crooks are using Yahoo!'s advertising network to infect PCs with the CryptoWall ransomware, it's claimed. Windows software nasty CryptoWall encrypts a victim's files using an OpenSSL-generated key pair before demanding a ransom to decrypt the data. It communicates with its masters using RC4-encrypted messages to command servers hidden in the Tor network, we're told. It was initially spread by spamming email inboxes with "incoming fax" scans or links to files held in cloud storage that were booby-trapped with malicious code. The malware then evolved to use poisoned web advertisements – or malve
  2. A new remote administration Trojan (RAT) receives command and control instructions through Yahoo Mail, and could be easily modified to communicate with its authors through Gmail or other popular webmail providers. This new RAT’s significance stems primarily from its ability to elude the notice of intrusion detection systems by operating over seemingly benign domains. According to an analysis written Paul Rascagnères of the German security firm G-Data and published by Virus Bulletin, RATs generally transmit the information they steal from victimized machines over a specified port, or by regular

In the longstanding battle of Yahoo vs. Google, score one for theunderdog.

  7. January 29, 2014, 3:56 PM PST One of the more interesting factoids if you are thinking about the upgraded role of Lenovo in the U.S. smartphone market going forward after it bought Motorola Mobility today is that Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang is an observer on its board. While he does not have any voting rights as a director, apparently due to issues related the Hong Kong stock exchange, Yang did land the now high-profile cross-cultural gig that also earns him up to $200,000 a year in cash and stock about a year ago. And sources said he was quite involved in helping the company think through i

    Yahoo buys QuikIO

    Today, it was reported that Yahoo in another acqui-hire move bought the cross-platform video startup called QuikIO… A Yahoo spokesperson in a prepared statement to PandoDaily confirmed the deal:I can confirm that three employees from QuikIO have joined Yahoo’s video team in Sunnyvale. We’re excited to welcome the team to Yahoo and aren’t going to comment further on deal terms or future plans.

  10. By Zac Miners 1 hour ago Yahoo has acquired Wander, a startup that makes a diary app, as part of the Internet companys continuing efforts to improve its products on mobile devices. Wander makes an app for the iPhone called Days, which is designed to let its users share photos and animated GIFs in a single package from a daylong period. The idea is to give the images context, as opposed to sharing photos individually, as users do with Instagram. Wanders team of five will be joining Yahoos mobile and emerging products unit in New York City, the division of Yahoo responsible for the companys
  11. Aviate was one of the more interesting Android launcher alternatives to pass through the Google Play Store recently, and it looks like the app caught the attention of Marissa Mayer, because Mayer announced during the Yahoo CES keynote that it has purchased Aviate and hired all of the developers on the team. Obviously, Mayer didn't talk financials on stage, but it is known that Aviate has raised about $2 million in funding to date. Aviate was an incredibly interesting Android launcher that would use your location and your habits to contextually change your home screen setup, including the

A few companies — Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, Twitter and Google — competing for the same sorts of revenue: advertising, search, location and some mobile hardware. Now look into the future of the technology landscape and what do you see? I’ll answer that for you: Google, Google and Google. Over the last year alone Google has acquired more than a dozen tech hardware outfits working o
  13. By Shona Ghosh Posted on 9 Jan 2014 at 15:21 Millions of PCs may have been infected by malware inserted into ads on Yahoo websites - and then used to mine bitcoins. Yahoo confirmed this week that hackers had managed to insert malware into ads displayed on some of its European sites, but hasn't said how many users have been affected. Security company Light Cyber estimates that several million PCs have been infected, and found the malware had been used to install Bitcoin-mining software on some machines. Separate estimates this week from security firm Fox-IT suggest the UK has one of the highes

By STEPHEN BRAUN and MICHAEL LIEDTKE Feb. 3, 2014 5:59 PM EST WASHINGTON (AP) — Freed by a recent legal deal with government lawyers, major technology firms released new data Monday on how often they are ordered to turn over customer information for secret national security investigations — figures that show that the government collected data on thousands of Americans. The details disclosed by Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Facebook, LinkedIn and Tumblr provided expanded details from 2012 and 2013 showing how often the government has sought information on the firms' customers in counter-terrorism
  15. By Alicia Barry Updated 45 minutes ago Shares in US technology giant Apple have been punished on Wall Street after iPhone sales disappointed investors. Photo: Apple's iPhone 5 has not sold as strongly as analysts hoped. After the closing bell yesterday, Apple said it sold a record 51 million iPhones in the three months to December 28. However, that was significantly fewer than the sale of 55 million estimated by most market analysts. Investors took their first chance to react in trade today sending Apple shares down 8 per cent to $US506.50. The company's share price has fallen steadily t
  16. By Kara Swisher January 28, 2014, 2:00 PM PST Here’s the only chart that matters from Yahoo’s fourth-quarter slides — the one showing a 53 percent increase in revenue and a 58 percent rise in gross profit at China’s Alibaba Group. Yahoo’s core business: Not so much, with continued revenue declines in a fast-growing industry. But — thanks be to Jerry Yang — Yahoo still owns 24 percent of Alibaba, which is set to go public later this year. Here are the rest of the Yahoo charts and press releases and such to peruse, most of which paint a picture of a shrinking business: http://recode.net/2014
  17. Starting today, anyone visiting Yahoo will be tracked by default, regardless of whether they've enabled the Do Not Track setting on their browser. It's a bold stance by the company, which described the shift as a personalized experience by default, and a serious blow for the Do Not Track standard, which has suffered major setbacks in recent years. Users can still manage their privacy settings through the Yahoo Privacy settings, but they'll have to do so individually, and Yahoo sites won't be responding to any automated anti-ad-tracking signals like DNT. "We fundamentally believe the best web i
  18. Yahoo! The one who enabled the HTTPS connections by default from the beginning of this year, the one who encrypts traffic moving between its data centers from 31st March, now has been accused of harming every Mailing List across the world. Experts from the Internet Engineering Council John R. Levine, specialized in email infrastructure and spam filtering claimed this in the post titled “Yahoo breaks every mailing list in the world including the IETF's.” on Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Yahoo has established a new rule to automatically exclude Yahoo users from the mailing list, becaus
  19. Yahoo is one of the many technology companies demanding reforms on US surveillance laws, and now says it's taken additional security measures to protect data it handles. Today the company announced that it's been encrypting traffic from its data centers since the beginning of this week, and plans to add encryption to additional services like Yahoo Messenger. That's on top of existing measures that let web users access secured versions of its various properties like Yahoo News, Sports, and Finance. "Hundreds of Yahoos have been working around the clock over the last several months to provide a
  20. Aviate was one of the better Android launcher alternatives before it was purchased by Yahoo, and the quality has stayed high throughout the rest of the app's run in beta. Aviate has finally left beta, and has been released for all Android users (on 4.0 or higher), no invite necessary. The app has been rebranded with Yahoo's name, and has gotten some Yahoo integration. The core of the app is still the same: it will dynamically change the app links shown based on contextual factors. That means, you'll see news and weather when you wake up, productivity apps while at work, and music or navigati
  21. Brand.com, a reputation management platform, announced today that the company is offering what it claims is the world’s first program for removing false and defamatory Web pages from search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing. “For brands and individuals, nothing is more visible or damaging than negative Google search results, but in the past it was nearly impossible to get libelous Web content removed from Google’s index,” says Michael Zammuto, president of Brand.com. The program that Brand.com has launched is called the De-Indexing Action Plan. When customers sign up for it, th
