Early this morning/late last night I got an email on my AOL account from my sister. I didn't really pay attention when I opened it, but it had a strange subject line. I opened the email and replied to her.
Throughout the day I got a couple of "mailer daemon" email notices on my phone. Didn't think too much about it.
When I got home this afternoon, I opened AOL and saw that a lot of spam had been sent to many people on my contact list. . . some with very embarassing subjects!
I ran a malware sweep with two different programs and isolated a trojan. I cleaned it off my computer and changed my AOL password, and hopefully that will be the end of it.
Can't people come up with better things to do than hijack peoples' email accounts???
