    Hey guys, I was hoping someone on here could help me out. My email account appears to have been hacked/compromised in some way. It is auto sending out spam emails on behalf of some c*nt promoting this site:

    Code:
    http://www.sto-res.com
    I was wondering if it may have been from some software i downloaded from the forums and if anyone else was also having this same problem? Or if anyone could maybe tell me how to stop it? Yesterday there was 110 email attempts, all had the "delivery status notification (failed)" in my inbox.

    I changed my password, secret question but today I have another 5 of these messages in my inbox. The emails say this...

    Code:
    i9

    I done a whois and contacted the hostign company to see if they will bring down the site but I'm not holding my breath.

    Cheers in advance for any help or advice.

    You sure they aren't just faking your email address as the sender? Happens to me all the time.

    Maybe so, I've no idea what this means or how it is done though?

    I know that when I try to send an email from my account after they have tried a blitz I get the same message saying delivery failed from my send attempts too?

    I had this happen to me. It was my main ISP email. They set up a spam farm and started sending out spam. I suspect that I got hacked, phished using a public computer.

    If it is your main ISP email, call them and have them reset the password. If it is somebody else like Google or Yahoo, it will probably be more difficult.

    Scan your computer and change your password again.

    Thanks for the tips guys, I contacted hotmail which were basically of zero use. I've changed passwords again and haven't had any more since so hopefully that's it sorted.
