  • If you are receiving a message due to an iframe attack the cause would most likely be the integration of custom developer applications into the left column of the new Yahoo! homepage. Since these containers are within multiple iframes it could cause that message with your anti-virus software. I don't know this for sure but it would be my best guess. I can assure you that Yahoo! implements strict security measures on all of its properties, and the custom application are run through strict code filters to ensure that no malicious code is run.
