Yahoo! is hosting thousands of fraudulent websites that have domain names containing the words "bank", "PayPal" or "eBay", according to a leading anti-spam group Spamhaus.

Spamhaus claims Yahoo! is hosting almost 5,000 domain names using these words, many of which are linked to phishing scams.

Richard Cox, CIO at Spamhaus, said: "They are hosted on Yahoo! I just took three hot words, but there are dozens of others including misspellings. They are mostly phishing websites,w hich shows that the situation is out of control."

Spamhaus, a non-profit organisation, currently has around 20 entries relating to Yahoo! on its block list SBL.

Cox said that Spamhaus had written to Yahoo! about a number of cases, but received no replies.
