Scammers hack into senator’s Yahoo account

Bob Dvorsky, a Democrat senator for the state of Iowa, is the latest public figure to have had his email system broken into by cybercriminals.

The politician would probably not have realised that his Yahoo account had been broken into unless they had sent a scam email to his friends and online contacts.

The fraudulent email claimed that Senator Dvorsky was stranded in Scotland, and needed to be wired money in order to return to his home.
