A phishing danger I was unaware of

Suggestion from yahoo, after warning that miscellaneous pop-ups should be viewed with great suspicion:

Do NOT click any button in these pop-ups,
such as a "Close" or "No" button, or the "Close" box that may appear in the upper-right corner of the pop-up. Doing this might install a virus or other malicious software on your computer. To safely close a pop-up ad, press Ctrl-W (if you're using a Windows computer) or Command-W (on a Mac computer).
