Email harvesting



It would appear that someone has managed to gain access to my address book. As I am unsure which email address or computer has been compromised can anyone give me some clues as to how this thing works? I have three email addys, hotmail, gmail and my ISP. I also have three methods of accessing my mail, desktop (unlikely here as it has been turned off whilst I was away), lappy running (Avira, and ZA) and my I-Phone (this is the device I suspect). I'm not a huge apple fan so have little or no idea what nasties there are out there for such devices or what protection is available.

Suggestions anyone?

Tell us something new....

Meantime, what sort of security is there for such devices?
