This has been known for awhile now, but the breadth and depth of it was really unknown until this week. Yahoo Mail is still scanning your emails for data to sell to advertisers My son is the IT Mgr of a large Federal Court. Most of the transactions and communications with the court from attorney is supposed to be via secure email. It was only discovered this week that not only the email sent by attorneys via their Yahoo accounts was being scanned but that from the court back to that Yahoo account was being scanned as well. Even worse any links to court cases within the emails were being compromised and scanned as well. Yahoo didn't have any answers to why they were scanning privileged information other then they shouldn't be doing that. For the time being the courts are blocking any emails from or to Yahoo accounts.
