Yahoo! Axis Chrome Extension Leaks Own Private Key

Here's a link to my latest article published at Sophos' award-winning blog, Naked Security:
  • Yahoo! leaks its own private key via new Axis Chrome extension (24 May 2012)

    The Chrome extension came with a little something extra: Yahoo!'s private key.

See the full article for details about the ramifications of Yahoo!'s big mistake.
