I Googled this type of misuse. and came to know that these people hijack the account by stealing the cookies from our computer to use for marketing purpose. :dry:

I just reported to Yahoo support , Changed my password, Deleted my cookies.

I want you all to be alert while surfing, don't surf any website which is unknown to you or is not trustful.

Its under control now but I am receiving messages from my friends regarding such kind of mail. :(

Hope we learn some thing from this type of incident.
