An anonymous reader writes: Romanian's users of Y! accounts are facing attacks (i guess from a local groups of hackers). The attackers asked in return of the Y!account an amount of money (70 RON, about US$ 29,64 or 19,13Euro) and a prepaid telephone card (SIM).
I was witness today to a such attack, when my friend lost his email accounts.
The attacker changed the password of my friend's account and begun to send messages too all the contacts from the address book.
We notified very quickly the abuse team from Y! about this attack.
