Junk emails using Facebooks friends names

In the last couple of days, I've received about a dozen emails that looked as if they were from contacts on facebook, but were just the usual junk emails. In the Yahoo main screen the from field would show the facebook name. On opening, the email is junk, (pills/meds/enlargement/won a prize etc) and the address is shown in the format "Facebook name" <[email protected] ksenderaddress.xyz>Add sender to Contacts

Obviously something is accessing my facebook directory to add these names to the emails. I've run malware bytes etc but nothing shows up. I've run OTL but other than having picked up PSIservice2.exe somewhere, I don't see anything untoward.

To me it seems like some form of malware is doing this - any ideas ?
