Yahoo has confirmed that its CEO Scott Thompson has left. The company has named Ross Levinsohn as interim CEO.

Thompson was former president of eBay’s subsidiary PayPal, and became Yahoo’s CEO this January. He has been under fire after the allegement from Yahoo shareholder Daniel Loeb that he does not have a computer science degree from Stonehill College.

He has claimed that degree from his job at eBay to the position of Yahoo CEO, and in regulatory filings to the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Interim CEO Ross Levinsohn was a previous executive vice president and head of global media for Yahoo. Yahoo says he will manage the company’s day-to-day operations in the new position.
