comment Why are iframes allowed at all in modern browsers?
Without iframes one can set up a proxy page for foreign content. Almost any web developer can do this. With jQuery it is trivial to load same-origin content into a div. ($.load) In fact divs are even more flexible to layout... But sure, if you want to embed cnn.com, you should probably use an iframe.

@D.W., The Evil Phoenix: Thank you two for your support. The old feedback had really made me think that I am not supposed to post questions here.

Thanks for your answer. Yes it's quite a risk, the passwords have been changed already. (And backups of important data has been done.) But I assume (hope) the attacker is just interested in sending Spam mails. I thought next time I'll be there. I might monitor the traffic with Wireshark on my Laptop and see if there is any suspicious traffic...

Thank you, indeed the emails are send via the Yahoo account. The mail are still visible in the sent folder...

Sorry, it might be off topic. I didn't really get the scope of security.stackexchange.com. Though I would define myself as IT professional I am surely no IT security professional...
