My wife's yahoo email was hacked similarly this week. The email was sent from her address with her name as the subject line. The content was just a link to something or other, and the recipients were all from her address book. The email didn't show up in her sent folder, but there were a number of "failed delivery" notices that showed up in her inbox from recipients' addresses that were no longer active, so it wasn't just someone spoofing her email address-- it came from her account.

Maybe it's some disgruntled Yahoo telecommuters selling off passwords.
