Yahoo has been praised for its quick response to a flaw in a Yahoo job site
that could have left visitors vulnerable to infection.

Security firm Impervia warned Yahoo of the flaw, which could have been
exploited by a method known as SQL injection.

However, Yahoo was able to deploy a fix within hours, meaning visitors are
now protected from such attacks.

"This is why it’s important to warn about potential SQL injection-hacked
problems like this. If the potential problem is allowed to continue for any
length of time, then the risk of a hacker attack rises as a result," said
Amichai Shulman, Imperva’s chief technology officer.
