Has anyone else been getting really crappy spam and virus emails on their Yahoo account lately? This has only recently started happening to me, but now I get email around the lines of this...

Title: Your Yahoo account has been suspended

Due to unauthorized use, we have suspended your account. Please read the attachment for more details.

Attachment: (insert any filename).pif

Hmmm, I guess that is why I am on my Yahoo account right now. :lol:
