    Howdy,

    I have noticed that sometimes when my friends' Yahoomail account get hacked, it sends out spam emails. Sometimes this spam email simply contain the theme url of a website using wordpress. The most recent I got is

    http://think-of.us/wp-content/themes/wedding-bells/google.html .

    What could be the reason for this Vulnerabilities and how can it be avoided, the webmaster may not be aware that this is happening.

    Contact that site's webmaster. It could well be that the site has been hacked.

    Check this news for yahoo hack recently and wordpress plugin vulnerability being a target here.

    Don't expect a public & popular email service is always 100% safe as they are always the primary target for a hack. If you want to be safe than sorry is to use hushmail.
