False positive on login.yahoo.com

Posted on June 21st, 2017 in New Domains by ndunker

On June 19th, a well-known anti-phishing partner listed a URL which was legitimately part of Yahoo, in error. We promptly removed the listing from our own database as soon as we noticed it. We have several automated processes that should have stopped this from happening at all. We’ve updated those processes and are currently reviewing them for further improvements to reduce the likelihood of major false positives of this nature.

Third parties that aggregate and report on our feeds should have already cleared the Yahoo URL, though certain website privacy plugins appear to be using third-party data that hasn’t updated yet. We remain committed to providing a high-integrity data feed, and apologize for any inconvenience caused.
