Was that sending done from your PC or from elsewhere? Webbased or via smtp?
Was that mail sent from your email account or were they just using your email address? Nothing easier than spoofing, you don't even have to know the password.
I just found out my email has been hacked. This is the second time. The first time was a year and a half ago and the installed McAfee system did not seem to have stopped it. I have downloaded, again the AVG free program for my desktop, as it vanished. I believe AVG is on my laptop.
What can be done to protect my phone, a Samsung epic? Can I do anything more to prevent hacking? I do not go to iffy websites, etc, I am scanning the desktop now with AVG, as I believe the desktop is the source of the problem. Is there anything else that should be done? The hacker sent mass 'stop smoking now' emails which then direct the user to a porn sight.
Thank you for any help with this
