Attackers can read emails, contacts and other private data from the accounts of Yahoo users who visit a malicious page by abusing a feature present on Yahoo's Developer Network website, according to an independent security researcher.

A limited version of the attack was presented on Sunday at the DefCamp security conference in Bucharest, Romania, by a Romanian Web application bug hunter named Sergiu Dragos Bogdan.

In his presentation, the researcher showed how the Web-based YQL (Yahoo Query Language) console, available on the developer.yahoo.com website, can be abused by attackers to execute YQL commands on behalf of authenticated Yahoo users who visit malicious websites.
