Do you use a yahoo client on your computer? If so, your computer is probably infected with a virus. The only reason that you would be sending spam from your email account is if someone hacked it, or if you are using a client program on your computer, and it is infected with a virus.

If you are using the web version of yahoo, please change your password immediately.

Otherwise, download the free version of malwarebytes at www.malwarebytes.org. Install and update the program, then run a scan. It will remove most viruses.

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.

My yahoo mail is compromised. I get delivery failure messages when I did not send any and friends are complaining about messages from my account that I did not send. How do I fix ,this.


Something that you opened has 'read' your contacts list and sent a spam message to them all.

Delete all messages received since it began happening just in case someone you know sent it without realising. Sounds like Malware virus or similar.

I have some hack or virus that is sending emails from my yahoo account to my contacts with a link to a canadian company selling viagra and cialis, etc.. I want to stop this from happening...


Recently spam hackers have been hijacking Email accounts to use for their own dirty deeds and scams. The best thing to do is to deactivate your Yahoo account and make a new one.

Click here to go to the Yahoo compromisation web site and follow the instructions to disable your account.

The reason deleting the account is because these spam hackers are sending unwanted advertising to all your contacts claiming to be you. As far as you know they might even be sending emails to all your contacts asking for money.
There was a recent scam where spam hackers hijacked this lady's account and sent a message to all her contacts that she was stuck in Namibia and needed money to be sent to a specified account to get home.

To stop it, delete your email account, or if you are able to regain access, change your password to something a little more complex and define for yourself a few security questions only you would know. Another thing is just to contact all the people you had in your contacts and tell them that you account has been compromised and that they must ignore any emails received from it.

Everytime myself or husband open our accounts the whole internet crashes, then it opens your account but you cant send any emails as it crashes


Internet Explorer may corrupt. So please download it again and try. But before that try this. Delete cookies & temp file from the PC and then try to use that. Let me know the result.

I am not getting all of my e-mails. Can you fix that? Are you affiliated with yahoo?


The first thing to check is to see if they are being delivered to your spam/junk mail folder. You may also have configured your account to immediately delete spam/junk, which would prevent you seeing if the emils were landing there. Check your security settings and if it is set to delete immediately, change it. Then, have someone send you a test email and see if it lands in your junk folder. If it does, you can loosen up the security settings you have so Yahoo doesn't screen so strictly.

Also check to make sure you haven't reached your Yahoo email capacity amount. If you have too many emails in your account, Yahoo will reject them, but they usually send the sender an email saying so.

That being said, I had used Yahoo sometime ago as it was affiliated with my SBC interent provider. I had similar issues where my email wouldn't come in or showed up a day or two later. I always advise friends not to use Yahoo as their email account for important emails. You might consider opening a gmail account at Google. Their system is much more reliable. Or you can setup your own domain and a email account attached to it at a registrar such as GoDaddy very reasonably. Domains are less than $10 a year and email is about $3 a month. It will be a lot more reliable too!
