Whenever I go to yahoo.com, open my yahoo mail or yahoo messenger. I get a sudden surge in activity of svchost.exe - this never happens in other
websites I visit, it should be noted that svchost.exe is popularly targeted by viruses, worms, malware, etc because it's a critical system
process(terminating it cripples your Windows OS!). So a virus masquerading as svchost.exe would be impossible to terminate manually - only by
antivirus can it be removed(assuming the antivirus is updated enough to recognize the infection)...
In fact, recently, my computer contracted the infamous 'conficker virus' while using one of yahoo's services! It has since been removed by my
anti-virus but the virus-like behavior of yahoo remains, sad because it's what I use for nearly all of my messaging..
Does it also strike anyone that the beginning of my yahoo mail url after login is us.mc5...
