yahoo emails are being corrupted by ecp.yusercontent.com

Recommended Posts

Help! When I open my yahoo emails in Firefox, my AVG anti virus says that it blocked this ecp.yusercontent.com. Email images don't appear. Downloaded Malwarebytes Premium trail, ran it, and it found a ton of malware- but after quarentine, the e-mails still pop up with AVG saying this is a potential threat. No pop up warnings from Malware about this. I know this was a topic back in May of 2018, and the resolution was a Malware update at that time. Anybody have any ideas? I understand that it might have been some firefox/yahoo thing. Must be a solution for it again.

Hello Nasdaq,

It seems to have resolved itself. I toggled off my AVG, then toggled it back on, ran another Malwarebytes scan, deleted my Firefox browser history for the day, and all of a sudden, no more corrupted emails or AVG notifications. Don't know if it something I did or a combination of things- or that either Firefox or Yahoo (or both) caught this thing and fixed it, but so far so good. Would love a definitive answer on just why this thing keeps popping up from,  since there are a few other threads here about it in the past (but all closed).

Thanks for the info, if it reoccurs, I will let you know here.
