Email Address Book Harvested



It appears that my hotmail address book has been harvested as I got a bounced message that indicated that something had been sent posing as me, A friend replied with the body of the message as follows

A dead give away is that I never use Walter in personal communications.

I'm not at all certain that my 'puter has been compromised as I run several different e-mail accounts and only hotmail has been implicated, so far.

Combofix doesn't seem to like Windoze 7 so all I've posted is my HJT log for now

Yes your mail address is being used by spammers.Not alot you can you about it.They will drop it.If it is just hotmail then its easy enought to create another and just inform your contacts of the change.
