This weekend my Yahoo! account started sending out spam to everyone in my address book.
Changed the account password
Changed the verification 2nd email address associated with the account
(In progress) Running anti-virus/malware checks on my computer.
Are there any other steps I should take?
I’ve debated in my head making this email account my ‘trash’ account that gets submitted to things that ask for an email account. I’ve stuck with that account because I have a nice, short, easy-to-remember username. Still, I can’t have my friends being spammed because I made a mistake.
The other issue is that I wonder how much I can even do about this. Even though I’ve changed the password, can’t they still spoof the account address and spam anyone who accepts email from that address?
Any information or links to what to do would be helpful. Thanks!
