    Has anybody with avast tried to login to Yahoo mail. It comes up as a phishing site. Is this a false positive. Securi Site Check says its clean.

    Do you by any chance use avast! 2014 BETA ? I do get a phishing warning with it on this Yahoo webpage, but FreddyFreeloader with stable version 8.0 doesn't get this warning...

    Nope, I am using avast! 8 on both XP and Windows 7. Both show Yahoo mail as a phishing site. This is with firefox 23 and chrome.

    The address is

    Code:
    https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?&.src=ym&.intl=us
    Edit: I use avast free.
