    Not that big of deal. Nobody was going to use a yahoo browser anyways.

    They definitely won't now

    IMO the yahoo toolbar should be considered malware already. But now someone could put together a really nasty one.

    It was for a Chrome extension, not really a Yahoo browser, I thought.

    Ah, I see. Regardless it is likely all their software was signed with that key. This is, at the least, a huge black-eye to their reputation which was already leaning to the irrelevant. At worst we will see a spike in malware trying to take advantage of this.

    I second this!

    I used to provide computer and network support for students at my undergraduate school. I need more hands to count the number of times I found tool bars to be the culprit for students' computer woes.
