Yahoo! finance sites victim to attack

In the never ending stream of major organizations sites getting hacked Yahoo! is the current victim. Over the weekend the site was hacked but has recently been fixed. The site normally redirects to but was instead replaced with what you can find here. There were a few subdomains of the finance site hacked as well but they have the same thing displayed. One strange detail of this attack is that the server was running FreeBSD which is usually known for being very secure. The attack was reported, by the attackers, to be a weakness in a 3rd party app but could possibly have been a configuration error as well.
