Yahoo search broken

Users reported problems with the Yahoo search engine on Thursday, pointing out that all their searches were redirected to the Chinese search engine Baidu.

Testing confirmed that at around 15:50 GMT on Thursday all Yahoo searches from South Africa were redirected to a Baidu search page.

The reason for this problem is not clear with some users suggesting a successful hacking of the popular Yahoo search portal.
