comment Yahoo Mail vulnerability resulting in emails with no subject and a single link
I'm leaning toward session hijacking, since it seems to happen infrequently. I would think that if someone got ahold of their email address, they'd continue to use it for spamming purposes. That and the fact that I've told people to change their passwords and their accounts still send out this random spam. I guess without getting one of them to volunteer for a Wireshark install and constant data logging, there's no easy way to know for sure. I would think Yahoo would have picked up on this and be tracking down the cause by now.

comment Yahoo Mail vulnerability resulting in emails with no subject and a single link
@ekaj: Always, but in this case, I think it's more likely a session hijacking attack. User opens an email that uses a vulnerability in Yahoo Mail to get their session cookie and then send emails without their knowledge.
