Web Attack using Yahoo Mail

This is the 5th time in about a week that Noton detected a web attack on my yahoo mail account.  At all times, I was using Facebook in a different tab and left my Verizon Yahoo mail open in another tab.  See attached screenshots that illustrate what happened to my mail tab and what Norton reported.imageNorton reportimageVerizon mail tab

Might be a false positive.  But norton has been to be more update than typical servers on Virus/Trojan detection.

Norton/Symantec is one of the worst products to use. It’s just as bad as McAffee when it comes to the intrusive programs to hate.

I won’t use any of these junk products. Malewarebytes with Windows Defender is much better. There is a free version of Malewarebytes but I use the paid version.

not intrusive at all.

After some research, I found out that the domain of the attacking IP addrress is owned by DigitalOcean - a cloud computing company.  Why would they be sending something to my browser window that wasn't being actively used?
