Re: email account Hacked

Ouch! Sorry to hear that.

Do you know how it happened? Did you report it to Hotmail?

Re: email account Hacked

Are you sure it's hacked? Sometimes the the email address is used as reply address, in which case you get a lot of non delivered errors as the spammers use your address to send out 1000's of spams.

If a lot of people in your address book are getting emails you didn't send them it's probably been hacked, in which case contact hotmail.

Re: email account Hacked

Had mine hacked last year , couldn't get into it
Luckily (and this is not a bad idea for everyone to do) I'd already created a dummy account with a false name , which is really handy as good old hotmail (now outlook, which is crap) activate it again by sending out an email to an alternate account !!!
It turns out, after a lot of digging, I found out that spammy emails had been sent out supposedly by me . They originated from CBS and one of their "Earn $500 a day from home" spams .
I reported the ad to CBS , who weren't interested at all (sounds about right for CBS)

Re: email account Hacked

Spurs, this happened to me a few weeks ago, after notifying hotmail, and filling in the necessary form online, I had to wait a couple of weeks for them to clear it up, then I had to change my password. I had to use an alternative account in the meantime.

Re: email account Hacked

Its hacked. Already had PMs saying people took emails from me at 1 this morning.
Been on trying to sort it, that's a mission!!! Not only that they are asking for info that I will definitely not be handing over. Can I live without emails? Mmmmmm

From the "postmaster" its giving a failed to deliver to [email protected] I have missed some letters off that email address just in case one of us clicks on it. I have never sent them a mail. IF its that ISIS trying to recruit me there will be trouble, I'm retired.

Maybe this hit you...

"Just 77 machines in the UK, though...Other countries that have been heavily affected by the Pushdo variant include Vietnam and Turkey...The Pushdo Trojan has been used to distribute secondary malware strains such as ZeuS and SpyEye, but over the years its main use has been geared towards spam distribution."
