A malicious ad in Yahoo Weather tried to hijack my computer!
A malicious ad in Yahoo Weather tried to hijack my computer! It spawned a popup with a siren and a "dire warning" audible message about how my computer was infected and I needed to purchase ransom-ware. I am savvy enough to recognize this ruse. I used Task Manager to close my browser (Google Chrome). I reloaded it and removed Yahoo from all my tabs. You need to screen your advertisers better. Shame on you! Bad Yahoo! Bad! I will stick with Google, thank you.
