If you are getting emails saying that a virus detected in Your Yahoo Email account, ignore the emails. It is none other than another tricky method used by cybercriminals to fool users.
Hoax-slayer has spotted a fake email claiming to be from Yahoo informs recipients that it has detected a so-called DSVX virus in your yahoo mail account and you have to update your account.
The email warns the recipients that if they failed to update, they will lose access to their email address.
It also claims the update will give latest spam protection, faster email and unlimited storage facility.
To update their email, it asks the recipients to send their username, email id, password, email security question and answer, country, phone number and Date of Birth by clicking the Reply Button.
Keep in mind that Yahoo or any other organizations are never going to ask you to send your username and passwords or any other sensitive data via an unsecured email.
