You need to go to your PC and change the e-mail password ASAP. Yahoo seems to have been hacked (again). Once you have changed password on PC go to your phone and delete and re-add your e-mail account on the phone (using the new password of course). I'm afraid that just changing the password on your phone isn't good enough.
Hope this helps.
PS ..... You will not find any virus or malware on your PC (or your phone). The hackers seem to just want to steal your email id and password then use it to send spam (probably to everyone in your Yahoo contacts list).

Thank you for the quick reply.
I am not sure how much my security has been comprimised.. I have a MacBook Pro Retina with Mountain Lion. I'm assuming that opening Yahoo on this machine will not let any trojans from my Yahho account in??
How do I delete and re-add the email account on my iPhone?

There is no virus on your iPhone or on your Mac. It's a Yahoo issue and I'm not sure if you can solve it by changing the password but you have to try by changing your Yahoo password with a strong one. Many of my friends have this issue from time to time. Never happens with gmail accounts. (As I know).

Thank you for both your responses.
I thought the news item I saw said that once you had taken the Yahoo hacker's bait, they would be able to read the key commands on your machine when ever they wanted, thus enabling them to read your debit/credit card input info??
On this subject, had they wanted to get into an iPhone; could they do this using this email link technique?
