I have been bitten by this email hijack.
For regular browsing, I use Firefox with NoScript, and disable all
Facebook because it is not functional without it, ...etc.)
Chromium, and fire it up as needed, and paste the URL.
and don't degrade gracefully. So I use those on Chromium once a week or
once a month.
My Yahoo Mail was taken over, and someone was sending emails with links to
my contacts with malicious links. I changed the password in Yahoo Mail, and
the problem went away.
but I don't recall clicking on any of the links sent by anyone.
I have NEVER ever used Yahoo Mail or Hotmail on a mobile device, so that is
not the attack vector for sure.
