Beware of "Your IP is at Risk Yahoo Security" Phishing Scam

The email message below with the subject "Your IP is at Risk," which claims unusual activities have been detected on the recipients' Yahoo is a fake. The email message was NOT sent by Yahoo. It is actually phishing scam created by cybercriminals to steal Yahoo usernames and passwords. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message are asked not click on the links or follow the instructions in it. Yahoo email users who have received similar emails and who want to know if there is something actually wrong with their accounts should go directly to yahoo.com and sign into their accounts. If there is something wrong, or if there is something that needs to be done on their accounts, they will be notified after signing in.
