Windows 7: Yahoo account - strange activities.

Yahoo account - strange activities.


I just checked my Yahoo account "Recent Activity" and it gave me a list of all recent logins.
Several of them came from California with IP:, though I am on the East Cost.

I Googled it and it is a server in NJ, but I do not know if this means anything, the IP addresses get bounced around.

Then I called my friend and checked his Yahoo account and he has the same intruder with the same IP Address.

What do you think this is......?
Is this a legitimate Yahoo server accessing our accounts to perform some updates....?

Looks like it's a Cisco router which is part of the background infrastructure - more than likely nothing to worry about as the logins could well be your own, security on the internet backbone routers can prevent the end user (you) in this case from being shown in a trace
