email has been hacked.
got an email from yahoo saying that someone had logged in from the USA while I was out. My computer was on
I changed all the passwords except for the yahoo one as dont use it much but still got compromised
virus can found this if its anything? email sent to everyone in my contact book with dodgy links. No idea if aol account been hacked as doesnt tell you if been accessed

Suspicious Policy. POLICY: HKCU\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\EXPLORER\ADVANCED[SHOWSUPERHIDDEN] to be changed to: 1

edit got it on my phone too and it says someone logged in with an iphone but I have an android but network is mine so is that okay, no chance of it being the phone as never logged in the hacked account with phone

Hello


this does not normally mean it has to do with the computer, this is normally that the account has been hacked - change the password on the Yahoo account (and the secret question) to something hard and let me know if it happens again

Keep an eye on things for a few days and let me know if you have seen any strange activity around your other accounts
