View Full Version : Hotmail taken over?

13-08-2009, 09:38 AM
Morning All,

I was at work yesterday when I received an email (spam) from my hotmail account, apparently from me, in my work email account. I also received it in a couple of other email addresses that I have, so I presume it was sent to all in my address book in hotmail.
I have all the usual protection on my PC. This morning I scanned my puter with NOD and malware bytes, all clean.

How does that happen?
Is it infecting hotmail or my PC?
How do I stop it happening?
Is that person/bot/thingy still infecting my hotmail?

As usual, any help much appreciated!

Could have been caused by anything. Most likely via an email attachment or flash drive etc.

Scan with a few more antispywares, such as Spyware Terminator, SUPER Antispyware and Dr Web CureIt.

You might want to make sure that you have a firewall...to stop malware communicating and distrubuting itself over networks.
