It sounds exactly like that has happened.

Send an email to security@yahoo-inc.com to report it. Hopefully they will respond and help you restore the account.

SOURCE: Some hacked my account

Go to Yahoo and tell them that you forgot your password, it will email a confirmation/new password link to the account you set your email up with. If the hacker has already changed the contact password, you can also change it using one of the secret answers you setup for your account.

SOURCE: Help I think my Yahoo Account has been compromised or hacked!!

that happend to me. all you have to do is log on to your yahoo account and change your pass code . when you leave your yahoo account make sure you log out every time. if you stay logged in theres a much bigger chance of it being hacked again. your passcode should be made up of some numbers, mixed upper case and lower case letters. after i changed mine the problems stopped.

How can someone send email from my account without me knowing it?


I fear your account may have been hacked by someone you don't even know. Please try to change the password of your account as early as possible for your own safety and watch what happens.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Some internet companies will lock your account if you have sent out an unusually high volume of emails. This is to prevent spamming. If you haven't been sending an unusually high number of emails someone may have hacked your account. You will need to contact Yahoo to get this issue resolved.

An e-mail was sent to every person on my yahoo mailing list for Viagra. The message looks like I sent it but I did not


Hello,

This is a common problem. Someone has hacked your email, and sent those messages.

You should probably change your password.

Hope this helps.

It appears someone has hacked into my yahoo email acct, my friends are sending messages that my yahoo email address is sending them malware & making it look like I am sending them something to open. ...


This has become a common problem in the past couple of months. Please follow the steps below in order:

1. Log on to your Yahoo mail account. Check in the "Sent" folder. If you see the bogus messages in question in that folder, then it can be assumed that someone has hacked your password and is using your account to send spam. You would then need to go to Step 3 (skip 2).

2. If you do NOT see the bogus messages in your "Sent" folder, then your Yahoo account has likely not been hacked, but rather someone else's computer (which does not use Yahoo) is infected with a malware bot that is sending out the messages independently of Yahoo, but spoofing your address as the sender. It gets the addresses to send to from that computer's contacts/address book. If this is the case, then you can't do much but advise your friends of the facts and that you're not responsible for the messages. Then go to Step 3.

3. In either of the above instances, it would be a good idea to first terminate your present Yahoo account, and open a new one with a different e-mail address. Choose a completely new, and hard to guess, password and new "secret questions." Advise your friends and contacts of your new address.

The problem that arises in these instances is that the user doesn't want to have to change their e-mail address, as that causes some inconvenience and is time-consuming. They would rather just change their password and secret questions and leave it at that. IF your situation is as in Step 1 (your account was hacked), then this MAY be sufficient. However, whomever hacked it knows your address and basically who you are, and had access to your address book. Your security is compromised any way you look at it.

The safest and most reliable method is to change your address, and your password/secret questions...and to advise your friends to please make sure their computers are clean of malware.

I strongly suggest using SpyBot Search & Destroy v1.6.2 from Safer Networking for malware protection. It is highly regarded, free, and not too difficult to use.

Hope this is helpful.

Someone hacked into my account and sending out a virus I am connecting from aol


Guess what? As much as it seems that your account was hacked, it wasn't. Someone "spoofed" your email address as the "Reply To".

Example, If I send a spam email message from my HotMail account and then "adjust" my email account to have the "Reply to" set to "jmamadonna06 at aol", then YOUR AOL account will start receiving the "non-deliverable" messages and hate mail.
Nothing you can do about it, even if you change your password.
We all have to deal with it ... so relax ... your email account was not compromised.
