The links go to the following fake Yahoo websites:

  • mail-yahoooo.com
  • mail-yahoo.icu

If visitors to the fake websites attempt to sign in, their credentials will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the scam, who will steal credentials to gain illegal access to their potential victims' accounts, hijack and use the accounts fraudulent.
