Yahoo Messenger vulnerability
I got a message from my friend on yahoo messenger containing the following ftp url of an exe file ftp://tlpoeil:firstname.lastname@example.org/selfextract.exe
Please beware about downloading that exe file as it could be malicious.
Someone can disassemble it and find out whats in it

As i am getting lot of hits for this topic, and i myself got such links from my yahoo network friends.
I guess the vulnerability in yahoo messenger has not been fixed.
This vulnerability of yahoo messenger could be exploited, so beware of exe spreading across yahoo messenger that is sent without the knowledge of the person from whom you got it. It could be malicious.
