Even your Yahoo! email can get phished.

A lot of UD folks have email accounts at Yahoo!, Google, or Hotmail for things like shopping and personal correspondence. So this phish, seen in a Yahoo! email account, could be relevant. Notice how this one contradicts itself–it claims your account has had new anti-virus software applied, but says you need to send in your account info (including your password) to “prevent spread of the virus.”

Remember, no legitimate entity will ever send you a request to reply with your complete account information (password, account, birth date, etc.).

See email like this? Just delete it.
