Has someone used the Yahoo Axis recently? Inside its Chrome extension, it was reported that the private key was mistakenly bundled. Although a new private key has been released to address the mistake, Axis security is now in question.
Would like to know if other flaws have been found after the recent update?

Following the release of the private key on Chrome, Nick Cubrilovic, an entrepreneur, intruder and blogger revealed yahoo’s mistake and warned the users of the danger. Apparently Yahoo fixed the situation as soon as possible and there have been no other reports of malicious softwares. The Exposed cert key resolved it in 30 minutes and according to Yahoo spokesperson, they are taking it very seriously and are working round the clock to ensure the resolution. The only Aftermath mishap tarnished the smooth launch of the new mobile browser other than that there are no other problems that have come up.
