Dear All, Please Help me,
An E-mail was automatically sent to all contacts that were added in my accounts, That e-mail contain a malicious link inside it. I also received this e-mail on my yahoo account because my yahoo ID was also added in contacts of my AOL id, I have changed the password now.But i want to know How this e-mail was sent? Some of the things are that i want to explain...
1. This e-mail was sent when i was online
2. This e-mail was sent with my orignal name "name removed by Admin for safety" However in my AOL ID, i have used a fake name instead of orignal.
3. I haven't told my this ID to someone, I use that ID only for Online Newsletters Receiving. (I always use my Orignal name "name removed for safety by Admin" while Subscribing newsletters or giving comments)
4. The link that was sent in e-mail was malicious and My Antivirus (Trend Micro PC Cilin) detect it as malicious, so it is not possible that i visited that website...
So how is it possible that someone hacked my account?
Please Tell me that hoe someone has hacked my account so in future i will be carefull.
Thanks in Advance
