    Hacked address book

    Hi,
    My wife uses Yahoo.com for email. Someone is sending emails to many of her contacts. What should she do?

    Thanks,
    Jerry King

    Jerry,

    She should go in and see if she can change her password. My guess is that the perp has already done that so she won't be able to. The next thing to do is to contact Yahoo and ask then to disable the account and/or change the password. Good luck finding a way to contact them though! Use longer harder to crack passwords next time.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!
