    System Compromised?

    I just received two e-mails saying that some mail delivery has been delayed. However, I never sent anything to these addresses. Has my account been compromised?

    Here is the header of the returned mail message:
    This report relates to a message you sent with the following header fields:

    Message-id: <64C60E9580D54426ACB7CDD38695F4E2@tbll>
    Date: Tue, 05 Feb 2013 11:00:53 +0600
    From: =?windows-1251?B?weDp4e7w7uTu4uAgzurx4O3g?= <scheerer@optonline.net>
    To: =?windows-1251?B?w+Xu8OPo6Q==?= <936242926.87542686307092@raymondwine.com>
    Subject: =?windows-1251?B?yvDg8eji7uUg7+7x8uXr/O3u5SDh5ev85SDx?=
    =?windows-1251?B?IOHl8e/r4PLt7ukg5O7x8uDi6u7pIO/uINDu?=
    =?windows-1251?B?8fHo6C4=?=

    Your message has been enqueued and undeliverable for 1 day to the following recipients:

    Recipient address: enormous_sun@maol.ru
    Reason: unable to deliver this message after 1 day


    Delivery attempt history for your mail:

    Wed, 06 Feb 2013 07:32:41 +0100 (CET)
    TCP active open: No addresses found for host Error: Connection timed outunverified address: unknown user: "drezun"

    The message goes on.

    The other is similar, but the attempted delivery address is: enornibu@difmail.com

    What should I do? Is this related to the recent Jave update?

    Thanks.

    It is unlikely you have a compromised system as long as you have a firewall and anti-virus running. More likely is that someone who has your email address has had their system compromised. Once that happens it is very easy for a spammer to forge an email header to contain your address as the return address.

    To be sure run a thorough scan of your system with your favorite tools.

    Thanks. I always keep my firewall and anti-virus up, and I just ran a complete scan with malwarebytes. I was more concerned with release of sensitive info, especially since of the the addresses that were "failed to reach" appear to be in Rumania.

    Probably is a spam e-mail. Do not click on links from that email.
