Hi Guys, I am starting this thread to issue regular security advisories, vulnerabilites discovered and new virus threats. I am putting this in Tutorials, since I will be posting HOWTOs to protect urself from these threats and how to patch up the vulnerabilities. Starting with, Yahoo toolbar makes false spyware links [ADVISORY] Yahoo has confirmed that its recently released toolbar has mistakenly linked an alleged spyware program with a product that has nothing to do with the application in question. A company representative said on Friday that its toolbar's Anti-Spy feature incorrectly identified alleged 'hijacker' software known as SearchCentrix as being bundled with Claria's Gator eWallet product, which is designed to manage usernames and passwords. Hijacking programs redirect search results or tamper with browser settings, according to Yahoo. "The SearchCentrix hijacker was incorrectly identified by our application" as a component of Claria's eWallet software, a Yahoo representative said. "We have no evidence to believe that Claria's eWallet installs that software. We believe that the misidentification was due to a bug in code from our partner, PestPatrol, and are currently working with them to fix it." A Claria representative said the company has no relationship with SearchCentrix and that the listing was a mistake. PestPatrol could not immediately be reached for comment.
