    I have no clue, but a few moments ago, when i tried to access my yahoo account, i got redirected to someone's inbox. I am using kaspersky and i don't think it would be possible for someone to get access to my computer by the use of a trojan. How did this happen ?

    Did you downloaded something risky lately?

    Maybe you got a keylogger installed or something.

    Try malwarebytes, you can download it anywhere for free.

    so you entered your username & pw? or you open yahoo mail and you automatically has been redirected to an account of somebody else? at this second case, it could happen that somebody wasn't completeley logged out his/her inbox (for example if you share your computer with somebody else) just you didn't recognize that, so you can access it that way
    but if i were you, i'd change my pw asap and run a full system scan, just to be safe ;)

    I am using my laptop for all my work, and most of the softwares that i download come from here itself. I am running a scan right now to check it there is a virus. Also i am using a netgear router, which is protected with a password, so i don't think that could allowing others to access my computer. Lets wait for the scan results.
