Yahoo just notified me my entire computer has been hacked
I don't know what's going on. Yahoo transfered me to some company that was going to charge me $200 to "secure" my computer. I am going use someone else's computer. Yahoo locked my account cuz someone in Ontario Canada and the state of Washington have been using my e-mail and had full access to my computer. Any advice appreciated. I'm just a poor schmuck. I am out of work.

It's probably just some spyware opened the 'door' on your puter, then someone got ya with metasploit. No biggie, just wipe out that system, change your passwords, use 'noscript' with firefox from now on.

Hello, I would advice just to restore your computer to an earlier time (check on youtube for tutorials) and after that install a good antivirus like free avg, free avast, microsoft security essentials etc
I will never claim that I know the TRUTH, I will always say that I know pieces of the TRUTH.
Knowing the entire TRUTH is yet impossible to achieve by human mind and it's too painful often to cope with; knowing IT also means you can't evolve anymore because you will stop seeking for the TRUTH. Seeking for the TRUTH is often painful for the mind and some might get on the BAD side of it, that's exactly why is often told in many religions that those being humble and not seeking to understand will be BLESSED. But we all got it wrong, and we will continue to get it wrong, till we learn our lesson. The lesson was always simple and right in front of our EYES, but we were programmed in such way to always COMPLICATE things in our mind. We make it more COMPLEX than it actually is. When portions of the TRUTH are revealed, some of US to be able to COPE with it and understand at least the surface of the MESSAGE and to be able to control these emotions and not go CRAZY, will attempt to leave something behind... No matter how insignificant is that “something”.. it will make a difference. That's me... SAD^^EYES in my road to HAPPY EYES.

wipe out the system? that means reformat the hard drive?
why would a hacker want anything to do with me? But you say it might be spyware opening the door? Yahoo said it was two particular locations, like real people.

Full access implies that 'they' can access any device attached to your machine. If it's a laptop with cam and mic built in then.... maybe.
Don't think your special tho, 'they' just wanted to enlist your machine in the online army.

Re: Yahoo just notified me my entire computer has been hacked
It's about the advertisements associated with web pages, (even this site). The sites don't host their own ads, that being the case, I don't see them because the ad is coming from a different server.
Flash and Java are huge liabilities these days.

I'm a huge fan of the 'tea timer' included with Spy-Bot, get the version 1.6 from old version.com

If you have a built in web cam, might want to put solid covered tape over it, hackers can hack those too and use them to spy on you

Op,

What operating system is installed on your computer it seems that yahoo is vying for control over your computer and personal information and bilking you of your money just to sell what they glean to third parties. Learn security procedures for your OS and turn away from eye candy instead opting for security

Try using search engines such as DuckduckGo or Ixquick do make data gathering as difficult as possible for the butt sniffers such as google, yahoo and Microsoft.

Someone is trying to take your $$ and take you for a ride

Yahoo doesn't even offer the services you describe unless you are a paying customer with AT&T Yahoo or you are a Yahoo employee and even then, they don't transfer or refer you to a "repair company"

Re: Yahoo just notified me my entire computer has been hacked
You acquired a virus, probably from clicking on some ad or otherwise shady link online. This same virus is trying to get you to pay the people who made the virus $200 dollars. Yahoo is likely not involved at all.

You should, as others have suggested, reformat your hard drive or if possible simply revert to an older backup. Instructions for these things can be found easily online.

In the future, avoid clicking links asking you to download something, and get yourself a decent antivirus such as avast or Microsoft Security Essentials.

Re: Yahoo just notified me my entire computer has been hacked
This is minimum reasonable security IMO:

Use Linux

Use FF with Noscript

Set your browser to never remember any history

Make sure your firewall is on

Absolutely remove (why disable? Remove it!) remote access unless you actually use it

Remove everything from your OS that you do not use. This includes bluetooth, instant messaging, etc. If you don't use it then remove it.

Check to see what is running in the background. If you don't need it disable it.

Use conky and monitor connections and processes. You'll come to know what is normal and will be more likely to recognize when things aren't.
