Win7, email account hacked by spam email

Question: Win7, email account hacked by spam email

Running Win 7 .  Opened spam email by mistake and email account hacked. Acct locked by server after 1600 email sent. Account has been recovered.  I ran full scan with Microsoft Essentials and Malwarbytes and both clean.  Then I did a full scan with Kapersky and it showed 1 malware  of Trojan.JS.Agent.cfl located on my external harddrive in my backup files location and possibly 2 other locations on the report.  I have pdf ofKapersky report if want to see.
I also ran AVG 2015 and it was clean.
 
Not sure if I should just delete the backup files from my external hard drive.
What other scans can I do to make sure everything is OK?? - I have not noticed anything unusual with computer yet but want to ease my mind.

Preferred Solution: Win7, email account hacked by spam email

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys. A few weeks ago my email sent several spam messages to all my contacts. I changed my password and this stopped. Last week my World Of Warcraft account was hacked. I completely cleaned my pc (as far as i could tell) and changed my passwords for my email address and my Blizzard (WoW) account. Only 4 days after I got my WoW account back I was hacked again. I changed my passwords every day during that 4 day period after the first hacking, but it happened again :S I've attached my HiJackThis log and also my MBAM (MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware) log for you guys to have a look at. Please help me further clean my PC. Thank you.

i use microsoft outlook for my email accounts
i have two email accounts. to simplify things, we will name them 1 and 2. account 1 gets forwarded to 2.
recently, i started getting advertisements at account 1, weight loss, etc... i checked account 2, which is a gmail account, and none of these emails are forwarded to there, not even in the spam folder.
i therefore thought maybe, my account on my computer was hacked, and somewhere on the computer they are sending these spams, i therefore deleted the account (1), searched all leftovers from that account, and deleted them, and then started the same account in outlook from scratch.
and again, all the above didn't help, i still receive the above spam.
none of my friends reported receiving from my account spam.

let me point put, even though i have many email accounts in outlook, the above is the only one i receive spam, but it was my default email account.
i am not sure if the computer was compromised, or the account.

the question being, is there a way to get rid of these advertisements, and do i have to worry that something else on my computer got compromised.

thanks in advanced.

Answer:email account hacked, and receiving spam

I honestly dont think its anything to get totally over excited about. I use outlook as my main email program on my computer also and my ISP is suppose to have a pretty good control over not letting spam and junk through to my inbox. But; even with that sometimes thing still slip past their filter somehow even as strong as it is.

Hi guys,
 
'Boopme' had me run MiniToolBox and he wrote that he found "errors and other issues" and he bumped me to this thread.
 
Norton now seems to be removed and the restart was successful w/ out a restore.
 
This is what I wrote in under the from "Am I infected?" thread;
 
 

Been having problems with my laptop running Vista Home premium svc pack2.
One day, a month ago, Norton was not updating properly. Upon the next boot-up windows would not start and I was forced to restart in safe mode with a system restore. This was successful but Norton Security Suite was still not updating properly.
Since then, on a few occasions, I have attempted to uninstall Norton without success thru the program uninstaler. Norton is unresponsive. I even got the Norton rep. to do a remote deletion of all registry files of Norton. But they all returned after the reboot of my PC because windows would not open and I had to start-up thru system restore.
Since then my yahoo email been hacked and spam sent to the contacts of my address book.
I know I got something but I don't know what.. Can anyone take a stab at what I might need to do?
Thanks,
Brian

I have a 2007 Gateway Laptop with Microsoft Vista on it. I have a personal email account with Hotmail.com

This morning when I checked my email, there was several emails indicating a delivery failure. However an email advertising viagra from a canadian drugstore was sent using my account to several people on my contact list. I checked with them and they definitely got that email.

So I think I have some kind of virus or malware that is using my email account to send spam email to people on my contact list.

Can anybody help me with rooting this out?

Thank you.

Hello- My AOL email account has been sending out spam e-mails to all of my contacts several times a day for the past few days. It generally sends out 15-30 separate e-mails with anywhere from 1 to 20 of my contacts as receipients in each email. The e-mails have different subjects and different text in the e-mails. Some of the subjects are: Re:3; Re:0; (No Subject); Re: Do you want to lose a...; Re:It increases sex drive! and many, many more.

I access AOL using AOL Desktop, Internet Explorer and on my phone (HTC Incredible). I do not have access to a Windows Boot CD or Install Disc.

I hope that gives you enough information!

Hey TSG, someone is screwing with my mum's email account and I'd like some advice.

Got a call from a friend saying they'd recieved dodgey e-mail so I opened up her sent messages, and sure enough there was a load of crap sent to all her contacts advertising 'Rob Buy', a dodgey looking ebay clone.

She doesn't use the computer much and doesn't do anything you'd expect to bring virus contact and never opens spam. I did a virus sweep which found nothing, so I'm not guessing someone hacked in and sent the messages.

The fact they're still in the sent messages folder suggests it's a lazy human and not a bot (to me at least, but I don't know much about this field).

So, I'm wondering what you'd reccomend doing and also if there's anyway to get the IP address from which the e-mail were actually sent?

I changed the password on it earlier, but I've just logged in and there's another Nigerian-esq bit of spam gone out since the change... What to do?

Please help, it's bloody demorlising to think someones hijacking my mum's e-mail for spam.

Oh, it's a Hotmail.co.uk account btw - the password was admittedly very easy.

I just found out that someone was able to hack into my email account. The hacked email account is a pop3 email account using a personal domain name at a web host.

According to my web host, it appears the hack started more than a month ago.

I don't know how the hacker was able to get my username and password for my email account. I am concerned that my PC may have an unknown trojan or keyboard logger that my antivirus and antispyware scans may be missing.

I hope someone can help identify whether or not I have any malware infections on my system that could have led to the hacking of my email account.

I ran the DDS.scr per forum instructions. DDS log file is below this message. I have also attached the attach.txt to this post.

Last night I noticed I had an email sent to myself from my own account and also lots of mailer-daemon messages with un-deliverable messages containing addresses from my contacts.
Have I been hacked? My computer is new, only a month old, I haven't clicked on any links etc in emails and I haven't downloaded anything. Last week a friends account was hacked and an email with a link was sent to me - which I didn't open, are the two incidents linked or just coincidence? This is the first time anything like this has happened to me and I want to be sure my email account is secure.
I have changed my password and my security question, and ran a complete scan but is my computer safe?
Also, how can my contact list have been accessed?
Thanks for any advice.

Answer:Email Account Hacked?

Firstly, check to see if the emails were genuinely from your account, or just spoofed. This can be done by checking the email header and verifying it was sent from a server that's used by your email provider.
http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/tips/header.html
If your information was gained then it doesn't sound like it was on a personal scale, but rather by an automated bot of some sort, a real person would not be so stupid and make such silly mistakes.
What did you run a scan with? I would suggest doing a scan with malwarebytes in safemode. The two incidents may be related, its impossible to say. When you say they were hacked, do you mean they lost control of their account?
There is a lot of spoofing, which is easy to do with emails.

Answer:Email account has been hacked into

Here are the instructions for changing your password on your Yahoo account.

http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?locale=en_US&y=PROD_ACCT&page=content&id=SLN2035

If you can't do that because the hacker changed the password then you'll have to click on the link that says:

"recovering a lost or forgotten password" and follow those steps.

Here's another link that explains what to do if there is suspicious activity on your account.

Hi all,

I just realized that someone hacked my email account and is sending nasty emails with personal information to people in my address book. This has happened to me before, about 8 months ago and was so chaotic that I lost a couple of friends as a result of the way this idiot was using my personal correspondence.

THIS IS NOT A VIRUS, but a human being reading through my incoming and outgoing messages and using the information against me.

Nobody has access to my computer because I live by myself, and of course I have never given my password to anyone. I have already changed my password, but it seems to me that it's useless, because they keep hacking the account no matter what.

What can I do to stop this??, what can I do to stay protected in the future??, how do this rats do it?!

Answer:My Email Account Has Been Hacked

Per the nice, if inefficient people at Yahoo this is a problem on their server. Unfortunately they don't know how to fix the problem and after a month of my calling are, in fact, still investigating.

For an amusing conversation try calling yahoo customer service at: 408-349-1572.

If anyone else knows how to get this resolved, I'd appreciate knowing too!

There were no sent emails in the sent folder. I did a virus check with norton and also used their deep clean eraser software but no viruses were found. I have also changed my password on the email account. dont know what to do next since I keep receiving failed delivery notices. Any ideas please?
 

Answer:email account hacked

shoddy,
Wait..let me guess: you use Yahoo e-mail.

In any case, we can look at your machine to make sure there is nothing on there that would allow remote access to your correspondence.

Recently some dodgy people from china??? hacked into my yahoo email and sent emails to all my contacts RE electronic equipment.What I am wondering is do I have anything to worry about on my computer?I scanned with malwarebytes and no infections.Any tips???Thanks in advance to any helpers.

Answer:Hacked email account.

the only risk potentially to your pc that i can think of is, if you log into your "hacked" email account, and you read any emails they may of sent, or infact others you receive - be wary. your best bet (sound like you still have access to the yahoo) is to log in, and close the account.once its been compromised, theres no telling when it could happen again.also make sure you have no sensitive data in your emails, invoices, passwords etc etc..

Hi all!
Last night my AOL email account was hacked. I started getting multiple mailer demon messages and my sent folder had 150+ sent emails in it.
So, I changed my password and everything seemed ok, I was able to send a warning out to friends and family not to click on any links from the hacked email. When I got on the computer today, I can't send any emails, a pop up box tells me there is an error and to complete an image puzzle and gives the link to go there, with AOL name in the link.
I have created a screen shot, but I don't see where I can attach it?
Is there anyway to fix this, and more important, has it given me a virus or key logger or something.
 
I have ran these programs to look for a virus
Malewarebyes
Adaware
JRT
and I'm still running a full scan of MSE right now.
Nothing has came up so far.
 
My Computer is an:
 
Microsoft Windows 7, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Motherboard: Hewlett-Packard
 
Any help would truly be appreciated,
 
Thank you,
Tammy
 

Answer:My AOL email account has been hacked

Your account is not the only AOL email account that was compromised in some way....hopefully just spoofed...
AOL Security Update
AOL Mail Has Been Hacked, Tricks People Into Opening Tainted Emails | Digital Trends
QUOTE:
Fortunately, there are a few ways to tell whether you’re the target of a spoofing attempt. If you get any “mailer-daemon” error messages that don’t match up with any emails you’ve sent out, that could be a sign that you’re a target. You only get such messages if you attempt to send an email to an account that doesn’t exist or is no longer active. Also, if you get emails from accounts which also indicate that you sent them messages you didn’t write, you might be a target of spoofing.
To combat this threat, AOL recommends that you change your password, but considering that spoofing doesn’t necessarily mean your account is compromised, we’re not sure how doing so would help here. Overall, if you’re Eagle-eyed, and follow the above tips you’ll likely be able to avoid any spoofing-related headaches.
 
AOL does recommend changing passwords and secret answers. But that won't stop someone spoofing your email address.
Best not to click on any links in emails but instead go to AOL's online login page and login there to change passwords, etc.

One of the most-viewed stories on this site is a blog post+graphic that I put together last year to illustrate the ways that bad guys can monetize hacked computers. But just as folks who don?t bank online or store sensitive data on their PCs often have trouble understanding why someone would want to hack into their systems, many people do not fully realize how much they have invested in their email accounts until those accounts are in the hands of cyber thieves.

This post aims to raise awareness about the street value of a hacked email account, as well as all of the people, personal data, and resources that are put at risk when users neglect to properly safeguard their inboxes.

Sign up with any service online, and it will almost certainly require you to supply an email address. In nearly all cases, the person who is in control of that address can reset the password of any associated services or accounts ?merely by requesting a password reset email.

Answer:The Value of a Hacked Email Account

I spoke to a guy once, who used different levels of security for his passwords. His email used the lowest level of security whereas his online accounts used the highest level.

I hacked into his email account using publically accessible information from his Facebook and other accounts linked to it and reset his passwords to various websites, enabling me to get access to information about his personal life. I used this information to piece together his financial details (card number, sort code, bank account number) and social engineered his bank into changing his address (to mine).

He was amazed when I told him and from that day forward guarded his email with his life (everything was reset to normal afterwards and all expenses refunded by me)

Hi,

My yahoo email account appears to have been hacked and has sent emails to all my contacts and for now it is sending spam to unknown email addresses. I have just performed a MS Security Essentials Scan and that removed 2 exploit:java things. I also ran Rkill and this is the report: I use Vista.

Hello and sorry if this has been covered elsewhere but I am panicking! Some of my friends have contacted me today saying they have received emails from me which have clearly my been from me!
I have the latest firewall protection and my email password is always a "strong" one apparently.
How could this have happened and what exactly do I need to do to rectify this ASAP? How much of my security will have been compromised if people I email have received emails that are supposedly by me - what has been hacked exactly - just my email address? Please help.

Answer:Help! Email account hacked?

In all probability they haven?t originated from your PC at all. Someone else?s PC has been infected and it's sending out spam e-mails with your e-mail address as the senders address. Do the usual virus/malware/spyware scans and if they report that your PC is clean then there?s not a lot you can do about it I?m afraid.

A hacker got into one of my email accounts and stole the password. Since I could phone that company my password was restored (after a live battle with the hacker). However, the hacker used the same password to take my MSN.com email account and he/she changed the password. I don't have enough information for MSN to restore the account to me. There is no way for me to phone these people or email them in any responsive way. I seem to be stuck.
 

Answer:Hacked MSN.com email account

Unfortunately you are stuck. The account is gone. The only way a company has to verify your identity is to answer the security questions. It's not like you provided a copy of your passport when you signed up. Focus on contacting everyone who sent you e-mail to that account and let them know it was hacked.

Over the last week or so, e-mail spam has been sent from my e-mail accounts--both my at&t account and a yahoo.com account. I'm assuming the two are related (?) since the at&t account can also be accessed through yahoo.com. I've changed my password, but it may be some sort of spyware on my system causing me the grief.

I've run a Malwarebytes full sysetm scan and nothing was found, same with spyware doctor. I've copied the contents of the HiJackThis log created this morning below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello

At wits end. Over the last month on multiple occasions spam email is being sent out in my name to people who are in my address book and to people who are NOT in my address book addressed from me. I have tried everything to stop this to no avail. My friends notify me when they get one of these spam emails because nothing shows up as being sent in my "sent" folder. I am using verizon netmail. I have changed the password, run scans, etc. What I don't get is how are emails being sent from me to people who are not in my address book and I don't even know them. The amount of spam I get everyday via verizon is ridiculous. I have contacted them but nothing ever happens. The emails that have gone out look to be disguised as a pharmacy company in Canada. Hopefully someone can help. I greatly appreciate it.

I pay for a Yahoo! email account so that I can get the bells and whistles. I logged in today and have just a ton of these "mail delivery failed" messages, as if I sent email to the wrong address.

It looks like someone is using my email address to send spam and I don't know how to fix the problem. Here is a sample of one of the messages:

Friends, my yahoo email account has been hacked. As a result all emails posted to my yahoo address do not reach my yahoo inbox. The last yahoo email I received is dated 17 December 2014. I confirmed this by sending an email from a gmail account to my yahoo address this morning and it has still not been received in my yahoo inbox. Can someone help me out of this? How can this be fixed? Is there something I can do to restore my yahoo account? When it got hacked sometime last week, the first thing I did was to change my password.

Last friday suddently i started receiving emails from contacts in which they complain i sent them emails with a spam email in portuguese (i am from portugal) with a attached document called "fatura.pdf", roughly translated the spam message said :

Good Morning,

I shared safely a confidential document with you on Google Drive. Please enter your e- mail to view it .

Google Drive: create , share and keep all your stuff in one place .
Click to expand...

My email account is from this email provider https://mail.sapo.pt

Obviously i haven't sent anything like this to them, also i didn't found any extra items on the SENT folder, and the password couldn't be "guessed" since it's not a simple one, also the password wasn't changed so i PRESUME it was spoof instead of hacking, altough my ENTIRE contact list all received the same emails, apparently! Needless to say i immediatly changed the password, but i found nothing else unsual on my email account.

I would like to know if someone here is able to analyse for me the full header section of the spam email, i can provide the one from the spam email one of my friends received, and then i provide the one from a test email i sent using this email from sapo.pt to that friend so that we can compare both headers, i noticed a BIG difference in where the email came from in the headers! Instead of coming from sapo.pt it came web7.msomt.modwest.com but i would prefer posting the complete email heade... Read more

Answer:My email account spoofed or hacked?

Something harvested your contacts from your email account. No conclusion can be made. So it may be that your account was hacked, or it maybe something on your computer. Although if your email was hacked, they would have used your account to send out the spam for convenience, and there would be no need to spoof your email. I would not rely on solely the one onboard scanner. There are several online scanners available from the big antivirus firms - just google for 'online scan'. Use several.

If you are still unsure, post in the malware removal sub-forum and let the malware experts take a look at your machine.

Our yahoo mail account was hacked a few days ago and was used to send out a spam website address to people listed in sent mail and contacts. Don't know if this is new but, yahoo has a log that shows who logged in to your account that was available and it showed that someone from Indonesia had logged into our account and a minute or 2 later the spam emails were sent out.
I immediately changed our password and notified yahoo about the break-in.
I was assuming that the problem is at yahoo and not on our computer?
 
Thanks.
 

Answer:yahoo email account hacked

Thanks for letting us know how you handled this immediately
--- Changing your password and notifying Yahoo was definitely the right thing to do
--- Yahoo has been catching quite a bit of heat recently in some other posts
--- However, if it's a password issue, that isn't Yahoo's fault than I can tell
 
Unfortunately when it is a password issue, even after it's changed, from what I've read, a hacker can have used an alias account to continue what they are doing if they wish to do so
--- I haven't saved any of the articles pertaining to this but if I ever find another one, I probaly should post it asking for opinions on whatever is written
--- Maybe someone can chime in on this perception I have from reading such information

Thank you ,

Tell your daughter to immediately (if not sooner) to change her password on her email account and run her security programs......

I received an email from a friend telling me she thought my yahoo email account had been hacked into as she had received a random email from me (see below). It would seem that somehow yaier.com has done this and forwarded this email to everyone in my yahoo address book including some work contacts. I log onto my company network from home as well as do my internet banking and I'm completely clueless about this kind of thing but i'm concerned about what may be on my PC now as I don't want to compromise anymore of my information or risk logging into the company network if I have rogue spyware on my PC.

Hello all.

I did try to look up previous threads on this, but I'm not sure if I probably need to post my own. But I think my live email account was hacked. It sent a message to a friend of mine with a string of numbers and attachment from me as the sender. A week prior, I had gotten a spam email from his wife... on a different account (but the one that was connected to my live account as the backup email... for some reason, I have noticed that the two emails connect?) Well, maybe that wasn't the reason for it.

But I went from a different computer and changed the password as well as the backup email. I have fun SuperAntiSpyware (getting two insights,gravity tracking cookies)... Malicious Software Removal Tool (getting nothing)... a quickscan with my Symantec.... getting nothing.

So I'm not sure what to do. I am concerned, is this something that can infect my other accounts?

Hi all!
 
Last night my AOL email account was hacked. I started getting multiple mailer demon messages and my sent folder had 150+ sent emails in it.
So, I changed my password and everything seemed ok, I was able to send a warning out to friends and family not to click on any links from the hacked email. When I got on the computer today, I can't send any emails, a pop up box tells me there is an error and to complete an image puzzle and gives the link to go there, with AOL name in the link.
I have created a screen shot, but I don't see where I can attach it?
Is there anyway to fix this, and more important, has it given me a virus or key logger or something.
 
I have ran these programs to look for a virus

Answer:My AOL email account has been hacked - not spoofed

Good evening.
It's possible that your email account has been used for sending spam and the "image puzzle" is AOL's way of blocking non-human sent email. I suggest that you complete the image challenge and take it from there.
 
As far as other issues are concerned, i'd say that it was unlikely that your PC has been harmed by  the hacking, but we can run a scan or two to see what might show up.
 
Pay a visit to the ESET Online Scanner.
 
Click the Run ESET Online Scanner button.
If you are using any other browser than IE, you will be prompted to download and run esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe and the scan will run from within the window that the executable opens.
Regardless of which browser you are using, you will be shown some terms and conditions and you will need to accept these to continue.
If you are running IE for this scan you will then be prompted to allow an ActiveX component to be downloaded, unless you already have it installed, and the scan will run inside IE.
When you see the Computer Scan Settings window, you will need to make the following changes:
UNCHECK Remove found threats - this is important.
Check Scan archives
Click on Advanced settings
Check Scan for potentially unsafe applications

Once ready, click Start to begin - not a surprise really!
The anti-virus definitions will now be downloaded, so don't forget to allow them through your firewall if prompted.
The above will take a little time, so now is a good time to fire up the kettle and ope... Read more

My WoW account was recently hacked into. After dealing with blizzard i had my password changed and my account restored. The hacker then hacked my account again and this time changed my Battle.net address along with the password. He also attempted to steal my hotmail at this point in time. I then began to look for keyloggers and viruses with hijackthis and various virus programs including Spybot, Kaspersky, Microsoft Security Essentials, and MalwareBytes. I deleted a bunch of toolbars using hijackthis and am stumbling across various files that i am unsure of. I do not want to mess up my new computer so i am going to stop deleting things until further notice.

I'm pretty sure 99% of this is unimportant, but...

I regarded it with mild indifference (after failing to find it with McAfee Security Scan Plus), since most of the accounts receiving spam from it were automated, no-reply email addresses (and so my inbox is often covered in notices telling me the emails could not be sent, as well as one company's automated messages helpfully showing where I can contact them).However, I just saw that, on Facebook, when I tried to reply to something, it posted my message along with the automated spam message, making it clear to me that I need to get rid of the spambot.I later realized that it was because Facebook notifies you of new replies via emails, and lets you make a Facebook-reply to the Facebook message by email-replying to the notification emailed to you; so, the spambot just intended to send spam by email, and making a reply on Facebook was entirely unintended on the malware's part.However, uni...

2. Spam is added to each email I try to send out.
I may have other problems associated with the above two.

Someone I know is looking for an free email account with pop3 access (to use in Outlook Express). He will forward emails from another account, and many of them are spam. This account has a poor spam filter, and spam is a big problem for him so I thought I'd forward the emails from this account to a new personal account with a good spam filter. Which is the best out of yahoo.co.uk, googlemail.com, etc?

I have this browser and I receive by mail through a BT address. I get about 99.99% (at least that is what it seems!) protection from spam, they are diverted into the Bulk Folder, the wanted mail into the Input box.It's then a simple matter of clicking on the Buld Folder(it shows 25 mails at a time) - check for the odd 'good' mail ( dodgy address perhaps?), if all bad then tick either of the two check boxes and delete. Easy.

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with a little problem I have with my computer and hotmail account at the moment. I have a basic knowledge of computers and the internet, so I hope I have followed the instructions in the 'sticky note' above correctly. I apologise in advance if I haven't :-)

On Thursday night I visited a website called Mediafire to view some photos and videos that a group of friends had set up from a weekend workshop. I downloaded 4 videos from this site that my friends had taken. As I downloaded each one, I noticed two pop-ups would open on my computer advertising other sites and musicians. After this happened I ran an AVG scan, Malware scan and Adaware scan on my computer, all found no infections.

However, since then, my computer has been running very slowly and my hotmail account was hacked Friday morning and spam sent to all the contacts in my address book. (The email contained a link to a site selling v *****).

I ran Spybot Search and Destroy this morning and it found the following 'infections': adviva, casale media, coremetrics, doubleclick, fastclick, mediaplex, statcounter and webtreads live. I have also changed my hotmail and facebook passwords.

Due to the latest media attention of the vulnerability of Internet Explorer, I started to use Firefox last week. I haven't had any problems with IE for over 10 years, but already have had a problem with Firefox within the first week. It didn't seem to block the pop-ups like IE ... Read more

Hello,
 
My operating system is Windows XP.
 
I use aol mail online, and have for many years and this has never happened before.
 
Problem started after I was sent an email from a friend that came from his website email with nothing in the subject, so I opened it up.  Upon opening it I realized this was a "spam" email - just had a link in the body of the email...I did not click on the link and instead I immediately deleted the email.  No problem thus far, right?  Not so much.  About a week later after I opened my emails I saw that I had sent myself the same type of email with an erroneous link in it (I didn't really send it though of course).  I saw a handful of my email contacts in the "sent to" line.  I then started getting those Mailer Daemon things in my spam folder and also in my inbox with undeliverable email addresses that were in my email contact list, so I knew that more emails from my address book than I saw in the one in my own inbox were being sent this "spammy" email too.  There was nothing showing up in my sent folder (none of the spammy emails that were sent).
 
I contacted aol help and they advised to change my password and secret question, and to also do a full sytem scan. I did all of that.  Nothing came up in the scan (I have Avast Free Anti-Virus) and I thought all would be fine. Not so much.

This morning everyone in my contacts list got an email from me that had no subject and contained a link to a canadian pharmacy. My wife came in and asked me about it and said she had clicked the link - that's how I know where it went to. Anyway, after I chewed her out for clicking on links in email, I sent a note to everyone in my contacts and told them not to click thru on anything from me.

I Use Windows Live Hotmail for email. I recently upgraded to Windows Live Skydrive but don't even know what that is. My email account is at msn.com ([email protected]) and I have had this account for over 10 years because I need to keep the msn address.

This is a Dell Dimension 8400 running XP SP3. I keep the Windows security updates current and it's set to auto update.

I use IE 8.0 primarily for browsing, but also have FireFox installed and use it occasionally.

I have the full-suite Mcafee SecurityCenter (provided free with Comcast cable internet) installed and fully armed. I just ran a sweep that turned up nothing.

Answer:My Email Account Hacked? It just spammed all my contacts

Your computer security and your web based mail may, or may not have anything to do with each other.

Scenario 1. Your computer is infected and someone got access to your Hotmail username and password.
Scenario 2. Your computer is clean, but someone hacked just your Hotmail account.

Whatever the case is, you should post in malware forum to see, if your computer is clean.
Also, in both cases, your Hotmail account has been compromised and you'll need to create new one.

Hello,
One of my email accounts appears to be hacked. The other email account seems to be ok at this stage.
I have also noticed some strange occurrences whilst browsing, but nothing too alarming. Just some erratic movement at times.
Could you please take a look and see if it the case, or have I inadvertently changed a setting?
Hope I have done what's required.

Hi, I'm new to this site. Also, I'm not very good with computers (but I guess if I was I wouldn't be here, right?) So, I guess I'm supposed to post my log from Hijackthis, and someone here will tell me what to delete, right?

Ok, I have an HP laptop running on Windows Vista and I used to think that there was nothing wrong with my computer. I have anti-virus software (Trend Micro Officescan), anti-malware software (Malwarebytes), and I also have CCleaner, and I defrag about every day. When I run all of this software, it tells me that my computer is fine. My laptop isn't slow and it doesn't act strange; except a few days ago, someone hacked into my email account (hotmail.com) and sent an email, that was supposedly from me, to all my contacts; probably spreading around a virus. So, I used Hijackthis and I have attached the results to this topic.


If anymore information is needed, I will be glad to provide it, if I can.

Please, please help me!!! I don't want this to happen again!!!

If you are a person that enjoys surfing the web and you also communicate with others using an email account, then it is possible for a hacker to get into your account. Regardless of what type of email account it is that you may use, whether it is through Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail or other such service, your email account is in jeopardy of being hacked.

A hacked email account is a serious situation that needs to be addressed immediately. This is because once a hacker has gotten into your account, they have access to all emails that you have sent and received. Sadly, this also includes private information that has been sent or received from your credit card companies and any banking institutions that you use. Because of the severity of this type of situation, hacked email accounts call for drastic measures.

One of the first hints that a person may notice when their email account has been hacked into, is a confirmation email sitting in their in-box verifying changes that have been made to their account. The problem with this is the victim isn?t the one who made the changes and it also means that the guilty party has had the opportunity to view all of your incoming and outgoing emails. If this happens to you, change the password set on your account immediately. Then, consult with an expert private investigator that has the skill and tools required to perform a reverse email search investigation. This is the best and most effective way to obtain information that can lead to t... Read more

I tried doing a search here for this, because I'm sure others have had it, but I can't find anything. My yahoo email account is sending out bulk spam to contacts showing a link for pharmacuticals, etc. I understand this isn't a virus, but what steps should I do? The few things I've seen online say to change passwords and even email addresses. This seems pretty extreme, others said it only lasts a few days, and they move on. What should I do?
 

Answer:Email account sending out bulk spam

Bulk spamming can sometimes be caused by malware. And other times it may be that someone has hacked your account. Have you changed passwords for you email account ( do it from a different PC - make sure the PC is a secure PC ).

If you want to be sure it is not related to malware then work thru the below:

My internet email contacts list has apparently been used to send out spam the other day. I'm not sure how this occured or how to prevent it from happening again. I run MaAfee and Adware quite regulary. I'm not sure if this is an infection or if someone has hackedinto my Y****O account.

I had some old addresses that are no longer valid so that they were kicked back. I am copying that belwo in case that is of use.

My fixes to remedy this is:
1) Change password
2) Delete all contacts except my work email.
3) Run Spybot and Adaware
4) Rescan computer with virus scan (had scan about 2 days prior)

Am I infected with something? I don't know

I have x'd out all of the email addresses that were shown

Thanks for helping out

Answer:Email account is sending out bulk spam

Changing passwords is not an extreme measure, you need to do it or else the spam will just keep coming and your account will continue to be hacked. Be sure to change your recovery questions as well. I would also scan your computer for viruses and malware, the spammers had to have gotten your email address and password from somewhere -- could have been from a keylogger on your computer.

One of my email accounts is sending spam to not just the contacts on the account, but many other addresses of emails I received or sent to people.

I checked in the "sent" foler, it doesn't have a record of the spam email that was sent; isn't it very possible I have malware?

The problem is that I use 2 PC's at home and have signed into that email account on different occasions. Upon doing virus scans with MBAM and SAS on both PC's, they found nothing.

What can I do about this? Please, I really need help please please please!

Since it is my professional email, I absolutely would prefer not to have to change email addresses, since I am in sales.

My Yahoo mail is sending spam. They appear in the sent folder. How can i stop it?

Answer:Spam is being generated from my Yahoo email account

Make sure no one else has access to your account. Change your password etc.I don't see how an Email can send itself without someone else having access to it or you have some sort of hidden virus that's running scripts(Which could be tragic if you access bank accounts etc). Run a scan on your PC to make sure. If you need software for it I'd recommend Comodo Firewall and Anti-Virus, myself.If you know it isn't someone accessing your account or your PC. Contact Yahoo and they should be able to sort it.

Many of my friends have stated that they have been receiving emails from me over the last number of days that I clearly did not send. I am concerned as I believe that this is a sign of the account being hacked. Just recently, I tried logging in and, for some reason, my password does not work.
Is there any way that I can take control of the account? I have tried changing my password, but I am having no luck with that, unfortunately.

I did change the password and the spam stopped but I want to know if there are any good programs for finding these trojan-type programs? Changing my password stops the emails but the program remains.

I'm asking partially for my own purposes but every now and again I get asked what the best method for dealing with spam is. I don't know how to answer really because I deal with my email through my phone quite often and it's usually pretty easy to delete stupid messages with a few taps of the finger and move along with my day. But for some that's just too tedious. The reason I don't do much in the way of automatic filtration myself is because I don't want to risk missing something that is flagged as a false positive, missing a message from someone who sincerely wanted me to see something they sent.

My gut says you can either filter on the server side with some kind of app that can be enabled or installed through cPanel, while alternatively there's probably a local filtration that could be done by the client software, and if there's anything outside of those possibilities, I'm not aware of it. So I'm wondering what the best approach to this kind of problem is. Is there a particualr client software that would work better than another at this kind of thing? Perhaps Thunderbird has some awesome extensions available that could be added in? I don't know.

Thanks for helping.

Today at 11AM ish I recieved a bounce letter to my @yahoo.com account saying I had sent a piece of spam to contact "A" and many more. My email it setup to run everything through gmail, so I just forward all @yahoo.com mail to my @gmail.com (using yahoo Asia for free fowarding). I also received the original spam mail in my gmail spam folder, and the spam was labeled as "to: [email protected]" "from: [email protected]". I quickly changed my yahoo password, and then check the recent activity to see someone from "Russia" accessed my yahoo account at the same time as this email was sent out (11:16AM). My question is whether I have done enough to prevent such spambot from attacking again. Me being foolish has used the same password for many years, as well as the same username as my email, but I have plans to upgrade my security as we speak.EDIT: Just checked my gmail recent activity and there was only my IP, so that was safe. What bothers me is they logged in through @yahoo but somehow sent it to some contacts that are only on my gmail. The yahoo account has no contacts saved.I also read in this article here about spoofing and forging, which I am a victim of?

My personal hotmail account was hacked last night.
I have been able to change the password since then but I am unable to access my emails still. I am told to retrieve a code from an alternative email address I provided years ago to re enter my emails.
That email address is dead and I have no other way of reconnecting.

I am desperate to get back to my emails so hope someone can help.
I have spent the morning trying to get an answer without success!:(

This new attack isn't circulating extensively at this point and folks should stay up-to-date on AV protection plus watch for any unusual activity in Internet usage or in their free email services. Hotlan Trojan defeats captchahttp://news.zdnet.co.uk/security/0,1000000...39287905,00.htmA new Trojan horse that sends spam through Hotmail and Yahoo email accounts has antivirus companies worried that the commonly used "captcha" system, used to prove new members are real people, may have been compromised. Captcha systems typically use a selection of alphanumeric characters that have been distorted and presented in a graphic with other elements designed to confuse character-recognition software. The idea is that, as only a person can read it and type in the correct sequence, spam bots and other malware can be stopped from automatically setting up accounts. The new threat was highlighted on Thursday by BitDefender Labs, which has dubbed it Trojan.Spammer.HotLan.A.McAfee - Spam-HotLan (DAT 5070 offers detection/protection)http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_142646.htmThis is a spam trojan which downloads a remote script to log into various free webmail accounts, in order to send spam. The script then tries to contact a second site, which contains details about the spam emails to send. At the time of writing, this second site returned nothing.

I have a few email addresses and one that I use paringly ie keep it for certain items, but today in quick sucession I got 2 spam emails on it, one from British Airways and the other from FB.
I then ran malwarebytes and quite a few PUP's were found BUT and this is the big but, a lot of the items found appeared to be useful and I then realised I do not have a clue what I should or should not delete!!
My queries are, how can my email get out and is there any guide that will tell me what to delete and not delete in malawarebytes?
I use win xp pro, norton security, spyblaster, ccleaner and on occasions try a few otehrs like malaware, adaware and so on.

Answer:got a spam email from British Airways and Facebook today to my guarded email-ran malwarebytes but??

"how can my email get out"
it will be in the address book of anyone that you have sent an email to and if their pc or webmail is compromised the spammers will have all the addresses from their address books.
As for PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) only you will know if you use the program(s) in question and whether you want them or not.
Or perhaps you could list them and ask for opinions?

I have a new ASUS notebook and it uses Windows 8. On my home pc I have Windows Vista and was able to set up multiply email accounts in Window Live Mail. (my charter, my hubby charter, 2 school google accounts and yahoo)
I was able to read mail coming thru our main email acct (my charter), if an email came thru that needed to go to my hubbys account or another account I was able to drop and drag it to the other account listed on the screen.

I have most of my emails set up on my new ASUS notebook. Is there any way to drop and drag emails from one account to another? I can drag the email and hover over the new email account, but it does not drag it.

Thanks for any help. I am new to the notebook thing and windows 8.

Hi, I'm having a problem with my email. I was clearing out my folders and notice an email in my junk file sent from myself to myself. Same email to and from. It was flagged as important and having read it, it is clearly spam. I checked Windows Live Mail and found a couple more of these emails that have been sent from me, to me.

I tried searching for this online but apart from some answers about email 'worms' I don't know what's caused it, if my account is at risk/should be deleted, or how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a new ISP and the new info or most of it to install email. My regular client is
Mozilla Thunderbird.

However to test a setup I want to install a duplicate Thunderbird or Mailbird for example
which will _not_ download the saved mail. That screws everything up.

If there's a way to isolate a test install of T-bird, fine. But I've seen that big download of everything
too often. The goal is when setting up a fresh email address from scratch just to make sure I have all the new setup correct. Then will roll over into what I'm used to again.

I'm bringing the question in here because Mozilla is hard to deal with.

I think I have asked this before. I am getting so much spam email im sick of deleting it all! These fat heads who send it to me I wish they would stop.

Some of the emails say "Your date has been approved with Jenn" Then will say my husband is away for a week so if the first date goes well we will try another.

Come talk to jean and see her body at bla bla website.

I get so many others too. Partsolver and towel direct?? I now have between my two computers almost 200 unread of spam emails and some thats not spam. It takes forver to go through and delete them all.

Ive been told not to hit unsubscribe but sometimes it helps. They say then they know your email is valid. Well they must or they would cease to email me so whats it going to matter to unsubscribe?

Ive even tried to "bounce to sender" but nothing works! Is there any way to block emails from these people? Or not allow them on my server? A auto bounce before they even come on my pc?

Maybe I should just ask my ISP I dont know. I thought id ask one last time.

Answer:I get lots of spam email to my email address

There are usually two places where SPAM filtres can be effective. The most obvious is at your ISP's Mailbox; because how ISPs handle the spam filter vary, I can give no explicit instructions, although their on-line help section generally will provide those.
The second place is at your Email Client on your computer. FF/Mozilla both include teachable Spam filters that you can use to segregate legitimate mail from the gunk.

The best place to stop SPAM is to be extremely careful about your Email Address. It would be a wise step to have one Email Address for friends, family, and trusted people, and a "throwaway" Email address (s) for on-line registrations, Ebay, or other public places. Once these addresses become, as they will, clogged with SPAM, you can simply delete them and create new addresses, beginning the process over again.

Regards,
John

Hello! I'm a (very) long time lurker of this site but recently decided to join. I've had my Windows 8.1 Toshiba Satellite laptop for a bit over a month. About 2 weeks into ownership I started receiving spam emails in my msn account, the one I use to sign into the laptop. These mails are sometimes from me, although I have checked my sent mail and there isn't anything there I haven't personally sent. I signed into a different email account and that one was spammed too, until I signed out.
 
I access the internet from my phone and my desktop pc (Windows 7). I wasn't sure where the issue was coming from so I turned off the desktop but the problem persisted. I did a system restore on the I ran AntiMalwarebytes, CCleaner, and my antivirus programs which all came back clean, but the problem is still here.
 
I've factory restored three times, completely reformatted the drive twice and I still have the problem. I installed Windows 10 Preview but I didn't receive any spam for the hours I had it running. I reinstalled my OEM version of 8.1 and within 2 hours the spam emails started. The last time, I hadn't even installed my firewall and antivirus program when the spam email started. I also noticed that my OneDrive says the last time the files were synced was in 1969.
 
Having the laptop in airplane mode or shut off is the only way I don't receive spam.

I am in the process of setting up a home business and wish to set up a separate business email account with low set up costs. I currently have a personal Hotmail and Gmail accounts but wish to create a secondary Gmail account for my business. I do not have a registered domain name. I tried numerous ways to set up a secondary gmail account without success it would initially accept the new gmail address but when it would ask to activate the account, it would not allow me to login to the account to do this. It would come up with a message advising that the account address is unknown. So I would again go through the process and it would then advise that the username is already taken, so I just keep on going around in circles. I then went into Google Apps for business in which it would ask me to register my domain name for a fee of $13 per year. However, the domain name would be registered under the two option provided Enom and Go Daddy. Neither in which I am familiar with. Can you please offer some assistance. My first preference would be setting up a secondary gmail account and if not is google apps for business a reliable avenue in registering my business name in order to obtain a professional separate business email account and if so which provider is the better option. Keeping in mind I wish to keep the costs at a minimum at this stage.

Hi

Is there some way of moving all messages from my hotmail account to another email address? So when I emails are sent to my hotmail address they are then sent to my other email address, (then deleted from hotmail).
Is there a program that can sit on the desktop that is always checking hotmail, and when a email is recieved it is then sent to another email address? (this address is not a hotmail address).

Any possibilities??
 

Answer:Make all email that is recieved from my hotmail account go to another email address.

possibly
if you have outlook express linked to your hotmail account you can run a rule on the mail - not sure if it works on webmail cia outlook/outlook express
but the rume to forward certainly works

Hi, firstly please bear with me as i'm new to this. I'm trying to setup the email on our virtual server through cpanal and using Thunderbird 3 (although i did try it with Outlook 2007 and the same results.)

Using the given Incoming and Outgoing mail server info given (mail.domain.co.uk) and the mail server username, I get a failed to find error (using both POP3 and IMAP). If I change that too the SSL settings for Incoming / Outgoing (serverusername.miniserver.com), it works and autofinds Connection Security as STARTTLS and finds the ports too. With this I can send emails fine, but I am not getting incoming emails, and I don't know enough about it too see what I'm doing incorrect, any help would be great, thanks.

I posted this on yahoo answers first, but the only response I got was "restart your outloook and try later." *facepalm* Glad to have found a place more dedicated to such problems.
