    Default Help! I think my email has been hacked...

    I have just discovered that someone has been using my email address to send out spam to contacts in my Outlook 2003 contact list.
    X-(
    I am currently running a ZoneAlarm Anti-Virus/Spyware Ultra-deep scan.


    I also have HijackThis, although i am not sure what I should be looking for in its log.
    Other than that... Can anyone please give me some suggestions and strategies for eliminating this problem?


    Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Hi!try to follow the steps detailed here:http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b....id=3787#M3787Including running MBAM, Superantispyware....etcThen change your e-mail password.Probably your case is SPAM faking the address of the sender, this can be done without hacking your e-mail account. They just replace the header with a fake one. There is no way to block it.Cheers,Fax
