    Yahoo Account Hacked
    So, my yahoo account was hacked last night and was used to send out a ton of junk emails for www . toallcn . com

    I do not recommend going to the site without your super duper filters set to kill!!!

    I now get to spend the day doing a security audit....

    Respectfully,

    John

    Is it a Yahoo hosting account or email account?

    I am still trying to figure it out.

    I am quite good at changing passwords, making them 10 characters long with letters, numbers and symbols.

    It is a Yahoo paid email account. I know it was not simply spoofed because the emails were sitting in Sent Items...

    Sounds like some kind of shenanigans going on, like your login on a phishing page, or keyloggers/spyware, network sniffer, or someone looking over your shoulder. Perhaps a call to Yahoo would be in order...

    computer is clean, I love fishing (but don't go to phishing sites), and my back is against the wall.

    Yea I contacted Yahoo and told them wot happened. They have a form you fill out to say wot your complaint is. Yahoo said they'd look into it and advised me to change my password which I did do!! Hopefully this will put an end to it!!

    A guy at yahoo told me that there was no reason for me to try to find a victim here. Now I gotta ask, Ain't it painfully obvious that I was victimised & I wanna put a stop to it ?

    Here is the thing. Yahoo don't really give a shit, & will send you in circles. They're just a bunch of corporate robots that play stupid.

    Good luck getting anything out of Yahoo.

    World Class Service is not in they vocabulary my man.
