Yahoo email problem


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.

I had a hack attack earlier this week in which scammers got into my Yahoo! e-mail account and sent the "Horrible Trip!!!" hoax e-mail message to everyone in my Contacts file. They also installed a false...


Sorry but the hacker never went into yahoo server. He hacked your pc got your id and passwd alongwith your complete addressbook.. Through which he was able to send those mails. I would recommend you to immediately change password to you yahoo id alongwith password towards your administrators login and also your net connect password. This will suite the purpose unless the hacker has dumped the keylogger on your pc. In case he dumped the keylogger then the only option remaining with a normal user is to format his pc. Else, use an IP sniffer to see the packets sent and received when you are not using your internet for any purpose.

Some one has stolen my email and sent out a message to everyone in my addressbook that I was in London and was robbed and needing a large amount of money what can I do?


Do you have access to your account right now? If you do, immediately change your password. Then email everyone on your address book and say your account was hacked and the last message was a hoax.

If you cant get into your account, Try using the "Forgot my password" feature to get a new password. If that doesn't work contact yahoo customer care. No matter what, get in touch with your friends as soon as possible to tell them the message was fake.
