Preferred Solution: My email address is being used to spam others, but not my contacts

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This is very embarassing, as it's an ad for "male" pills and some of these people are older family members that don't understand how this can happen. I understand the spoofing and using my email address to cover up the real address, but how do they get all my email contacts? Will this happen again? Is there anything I can do about it?

Hi,

I keep receiving junk emails, however these particular ones are coming through as my current email contacts (friends/family).

I dont want to delete any of these contacts of course, but im getting up to 10 every day from the same address.

What could be the solution to this?

Many thanks

A:Spam sent as email contacts

What e-mail program are you using (name and version)? What e-mail provider are you using? When you say they are from various friends and family, but all have the "same address" what exactly do you mean? Do you mean the same TCP/IP address? How are they showing up as different people but all with the same address - I don't understand what you mean.

Thanks!

Hello, just today my email sent out a bunch of spam to all my contacts. I scanned with AVG but nothing showed up as a threat. I am worried that it will happen again. Below is my hijackthis log.
Thanks for the help!

The email content was something like "hey check this out this is intense... (link to job offering)" I deleted all of it before I copied it down.

My mother's gmail account seems to have contracted a virus that sends an email with the subject line ' hi ' to everyone in the contacts book and with the url 'http sites google com site s yhf eydya aovq a' in the message body The site appears to be Canadian and is selling vyagra I don't think it's likely to have done any harm to the computer itself and we noticed the problem when she received several failed message emails The spam virus sending Email to contacts machine we noticed the problem was a mac so I guess that makes it even less likely the virus is affecting the actual computer but obviously it's not great for my Mum to be sending everyone she knows links to vyagra sites and also I don't know if Email virus sending spam to contacts the emails themselves contain the virus and would infect the recipients Is it possible to disinfect the account or does one just have to start over with a new one That would be hugely inconvenient given how long my mother has used this account

Hi,

Gmail account password and secret question has to be changed. Also, check email filters (in Gmail settings) that there're no unfamiliar ones set.

I have an att.net email account which is now serviced by Yahoo. Today a spam message originated from my account and was sent to everyone on my contacts list. "xmas" was in the subject line and the content was a web address which opens to a website apparently selling medications from Canada. Webroot antivirus has not detected any virus or malware on my computer. What should I do? Do I need to close the att.net email account?

I think I have asked this before I am getting so much spam email im sick email spam I my get address of to lots email of deleting it all These fat heads who send it to me I wish they would stop Some of the emails say quot Your date has been approved with Jenn quot Then will say my husband is away for a week so if the first date goes well we will try another Come talk to jean and see her body at bla bla website I get so many others too Partsolver and towel direct I now have between my two computers almost unread of spam emails and some thats not spam It takes forver to go through and delete them all Ive been told not to hit unsubscribe but sometimes it helps They say then they know your email is valid Well they I get lots of spam email to my email address must or they would cease to email me so whats it going to matter to unsubscribe Ive even tried to quot bounce to sender quot but nothing works Is there any way to block emails from these people Or not allow them on my server A auto bounce before they even come on my pc Maybe I should just ask my ISP I dont know I thought id ask one last time

A:I get lots of spam email to my email address

There are usually two places where SPAM filtres can be effective. The most obvious is at your ISP's Mailbox; because how ISPs handle the spam filter vary, I can give no explicit instructions, although their on-line help section generally will provide those.
The second place is at your Email Client on your computer. FF/Mozilla both include teachable Spam filters that you can use to segregate legitimate mail from the gunk.

The best place to stop SPAM is to be extremely careful about your Email Address. It would be a wise step to have one Email Address for friends, family, and trusted people, and a "throwaway" Email address (s) for on-line registrations, Ebay, or other public places. Once these addresses become, as they will, clogged with SPAM, you can simply delete them and create new addresses, beginning the process over again.

Regards,
John

Sounds like a virus. There is one that e-mails using random addresses. Go to Symantec website and download fixes for the latest viruses.

I have recently started to get returned emails from people who I don't know and haven't sent e-mails to. these are messages that are hitting their spam filters and being rejected/returned for verification. Is there any way to stop this? Is there some way to check if these messages are coming from my PC? I don't see anything in my sent items folder. If not from my PC, is there any way to identify the source from the returned e-mails and possibly stop them?

Using outlook 2007, Windows XP

Thank you

One email address in my contacts disappeared. It does not pop out automatically anymore when I spell the first letter.

I checked in my red list if I had misplaced it but this address was not there either.

I still can write to this person and she will receive my emails. However I do not receive her emails anymore.
I tried to trick the system by emailing her through the same account with a second account I put with the
new system since Microsoft suppressed the links accouts. Same thing: she will receive my email but I do not receive
hers.

Can anyone help me to fix this problem.
Thanks a lot.

A:Contacts getting spammed from my email address

Greetings techboy and to BleepingComputer's Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal forum.My name is Oh My! and I am here to help you! Now that we are "friends" please call me Gary.If you would allow me to call you by your first name I would prefer to do that.===================================================Ground Rules:First, I would like to inform you that most of us here at Bleeping Computer offer our expert assistance out of the goodness of our hearts. Please try to match our commitment to you with your patience toward us. If this was easy we would never have met. Please do not run any tools or take any steps other than those I will provide for you while we work on your computer together. I need to be certain about the state of your computer in order to provide appropriate and effective steps for you to take. Most often "well intentioned" (and usually panic driven!) independent efforts can make things much worse for both of us. If at any point you would prefer to take your own steps please let me know, I will not be offended. I would be happy to focus on the many others who are waiting in line for assistance.Please perform all steps in the order they are listed in each set of instructions. Some steps may be a bit complicated. If things are not clear, be sure to stop and let me know. We need to work on this together with confidence.Please copy and paste all logs into your post unless directed otherwise. Please do not re-run any programs I suggest. If you encounter problems simply stop and tell me.When you post your reply, use the button instead.In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see the button. Click on this then choose Immediate E-Mail notification and then Proceed and you will be sent an email once I have posted a response.If you do not reply to your topic after 5 days we assume it has been abandoned and I will close it.When your computer is clean I will alert you of such. I will also provide for you detailed information about how you can combat future infections.I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so.Now let's get started===================================================Now that I am assisting you, you can expect that I will be very responsive to your situation. If you are able, I would request you check this thread at least once per day so that we can try to resolve your issues effectively and efficiently. If you are going to be delayed please be considerate and post that information so that I know you are still with me. Unfortunately, there are many people waiting to be assisted and not enough of us at BleepingComputer to go around. I appreciate your understanding and diligence.Thank you for your patience thus far. Please consider and do this.===================================================P2P Warning--------------------Going over your logs I noticed that you have Limewire installed. It is pretty much certain that if you continue to use P2P programs, you will get infected again.Avoid gaming sites, pirated software, cracking tools, keygens, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs.They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites.Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users.The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to avoid these types of web sites and not use any P2P applications.I would recommend that you uninstall Limewire, however that choice is up to you. If you choose to remove the program, you can do so via Start > Control Panel > Add/... Read more

Not even sure if this should be here.

This AM my web-based Yahoo mail sent a spam to everyone on my contact list. I constantly see others having this happen to them but I do a daily scan with MBAM,SuperAntiSpyware and Windows Essentials and so far the computer LOOKS clean.

I have no idea about the web-based (Yahoo!) mail client, but it wold need an impetus from my computer to go sending crud about, I should think.

Asking Yahoo! about this proved slightly less frustrating that trying to thread a needle while on a vibrating bed.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

This company or spammer is sending us spam with our own email address. I have tried to write them that we will file charges or whatever our State Attorney General thinks is best.

But none of the emails or applications on their site will go through.

hello ,

do not open the messages for that is what started it

block the message

is it thru (outlook) or another mail system

get a good spam blocking software

also listing (e-mails & company address's ) in forums will give the spamers that browse forums looking for address' & company names a link to you or the company

is your company big enough to have an IT tech ?

if so then contact hime to solve this issue for then he will have a kinda lock on the system and what we tell you will be kinda useless

i would post a hijackthis log - HIJACK THIS:

Download and copy hijackthis [should be version 1.99.1] to its own folder , it makes backups so keeping them separate and available can be useful.
SO DO NOT put hjt onto the desktop or temp files.

create a directory say my documents/hjt

Note the Spyware tools websites are very often under attack and so I have provided more than 1 location to download from:

{NOTE: Systems infected with the 'Ms4Hd' rootkit parasite will experience crashes in HijackThis 1.99.x since this parasite deliberately crashes programs that try to detect it. For such cases, Use HijackThis 1.98.2 }

You must make sure all startup programs are selected - to do this:
This does NOT apply to win2K
Open Start> Run and type MSConfig in the 'Run' box.
When the System Configuration Utility opens, go to the 'Startup Tab' and make sure there is a checkmark beside each and every entry entry.
Goto the general tab and makesure that the "normal startup" option is checked.
REBOOT when asked to by Windows to complete the change.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (Fix checked button appearing, may take a while on some systems), the scan button will change to “Save Log”.
Click on “Save Log” and then it should save and open in NotePad.
Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.
DO NOT FIX ANYTHING wait advice from one of the many security experts in this forum.

I have 1300 Outlook 2007 contacts, some without Emails, some with good Emails and doubtless some with out-of-date Emails. Is there an easy way to notify all the good Email address of my new Email address? I tried mass mailing all the A's and the error message reads..."550 (message) does not conform to RFC2822 standard." No idea what that means.

Any suggestions? And thanks as always...you guys are great!
 

A:Mass Email to contacts re: address change?

My guess is that some of the email address contain invalid characters somewhere in them or your ISP has some type of anti-spam procedure that prevents you from emailing more than a certain number of people at a time. I would start by exporting your list of contacts to an Excel file and then scroll through them looking for invalid characters or extra leading or trailing spaces.

Regards,
Rollin

A friend of mine recently started getting a lot of emails from people on her contact list saying that they look like spam. They asked her if she sent these emails and of course, she didn't. She has changed her password but the problem persists. She has run a number of different scans and that hasn't solved the problem either. Is there anything that can be done?

A:A friend's email address is on multiple emails to contacts

If her contact list has been hacked, it can't be undone.  If they have the contact list, changing the password will not change anything.  Sounds like she needs to lock down her phone better.  She needs to be more careful, and check all her privacy settings.  Have her create a new email and let her contacts know.  People don't realize that they are granting the world access to their personal information with these phones.  Google+, Facebook, instagram, Pinterest, etc.... they all access ALL your personal info by default, and makes it simple for others to gain access.

I should add some contact to this Yahoo address book by copy?

What words should I include in email subject and content?

Then I can search any contact in this Yahoo email inbox.

And Yahoo can cooperate with Open Office?

The tittle of the topic is wrong but I could not edit it, the only problem that I have is with gmail. Emails were sent without my authorization from my gmail account to some of my contacts; the content of the email was a link to strange web sites; the activity showed that someone from Trinidad & Tobago has logged in ( I do not know anyone there).I did not installed any programs or software on several weeks prior to these problems. I have not made any changes to my pc. I do not receive any kind of error message. I have run several online antivirus, all of them show zero infections, with the exception of Onecare from Microsoft that showed one error but was unable to see the kind of error. Before this I have never had any kind of problem or strange behavior. .Thanks in advance for all your help.

I am using Windows XP SP3, Avast, Firefox.

i was advised to change my password for my email to something which was capitals&lower key + numbers. Scan using malware and avira. didnt find anything, and had no problems since.

Hello.
I saw this morning two delivery failure messages from Yahoo showing someone or something tried to send spam to my contacts in Yahoo. Upon investigation I noticed that it also deleted two years worth of messages in my sent folder. I've since changed my password and security questions and cleared the cache on my browser. I also immediately ran a MBAM and SAS scan and both found nothing. I didn't delete the failure messages which include headers for the original spam emails, so I can provide headers upon request.

Recently, I received a spam email from a contact (who also uses Yahoo) so I imagine the two may be related. I've read from a few users that Yahoo servers may have experienced an intrusion, but I want to make sure I don't have an infection or rootkit. Thanks in advance.

(I'm running Windows 7).

A:Spam to Yahoo Contacts

Update: I found where he/she/it deleted sent items. He didn't clear out my trash bin. So I have the original spam messages in case they are needed. Thankfully the two returned messages were all that were sent.

I have a problem where an automated mail is sent from a third party software (SPAM) that goes to all my contacts in my address book.

What should I do?

I want to stop this program from sending automated messages. This is from a website Desktop Dating. It keeps sending a message that Did you receive my Invite to all my contacts.

How do I ensure that these mails do not go out.

A:Gmail sending SPAM to all my contacts

Wish I knew-the same exact thing has happened to my hotmail account and has sent this "invite" to my contacts on my hotmail account! I am very angry about this and when I tried contacting all of my contacts to let them know not to open the email invite to desktop dating that was supposedly from me, microsoft sent me a message saying I exceeded my 300 email messages a day so my email account is now suspended for 24 hours!!That is ridiculous because as now 374 other contacts on my list will not get the warning message about not opening up the desktop dating invite and thus their contact lists will probably be hijacked too because I can't warn them in time about this bogus email message. Let me know if someone tells you what to do--wish we could sue all these jerks for the problems they have caused us by their scams.

im running win xp through bootcamp on a mac, yesterday i discovered that my hotmail account had been using to send spam to all my contatcs(evidence in my sent folder).

This is the first time iv had this happen to me, how could my hotmail account have been compromised?could my password have been hacked? or is there another way they gained access to my account?

I have since changed my password but i doubt that will be enough, i do not want to have to make a new accoutn and keep this one what should i do?

My friend has been complaining to me that "someone hacked into her account" and is sending spam to all of her contacts from MSN, Hotmail and Facebook.

I understand that a lot of spam only appears to be sent from a specific account when in fact the "from" field is really just one of the many e-mail addresses that have been stolen.

But, the fact that the recipients of the spam are all on her contact list and it the e-mails are coming from several different contact lists makes me wonder if this is true. Perhaps someone has "stolen" her contact lists?

How does this all work, and is there anything she can do about it?

In researching why someone's Yahoo account was sending spam to all of their contacts, I discovered a neat tool that Yahoo offers. If you go to "Account Info," there is a section that says, "View Your Recent Login Activity." We found that someone from India and/or Indonesia was logging into the account (see screenshot attached). The WY logins are the actual legit user in the USA, but the India and Indonesia logins are not legit. Before cancelling the account, we suggested a VERY strong password consisting of letters, numbers, symbols, capital letters, etc. We will monitor to see if any strange activity recurs.

Hi folks,

During the past few days I have been receiving spam E-mails which appear on first glance to come from people who are known to me (either in my contacts list or possibly people to whom I have previously sent E-mails or from whom I have previously received E-mails). The actual E-mail address behind the name is always some unknown hotmail address, and my spam filter correctly identifies these messages as spam.

My concern is that I have some malware on my computer which has picked out names from my contacts list (or from messages received or sent by me) and used those names (although not their real E-mail addresses) to make junk mail appear not to be junk. In other words, my computer appears to have been invaded/infected by something which has extracted and misused information from my computer. I would like to get rid of it!!!

Does anyone know what I've been infected with?

Mike

A:Spam E-mail Purportedly From People In My Contacts List

It could also be that someone you correspond with has the same addresses in common with you and their address book has been compromised. It is also possible you sent an email with addresses for several people in the "to" line instead of using the "bcc" line to hide the addresses you sent the email to. The first step to check if you have malware is to scan your computer. Below are two good programs to do that with. Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds. http://www.superantispyware.com/Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode.

To do this restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly.

A:Hotmail account sending out spam to my contacts list

Unless you are absolutely certain that the E-mail is actually coming from your computer, it would be more likely that someone else's computer is infected and the malware found your E-mail address there. And too, spammers often mask their stuff as if it came from an E-mail daemon, since most ISPS do not filter that address.

Running Win 7 .  Opened spam email by mistake and email account hacked. Acct locked by server after 1600 email sent. Account has been recovered.  I ran full scan with Microsoft Essentials and Malwarbytes and both clean.  Then I did a full scan with Kapersky and it showed 1 malware  of Trojan.JS.Agent.cfl located on my external harddrive in my backup files location and possibly 2 other locations on the report.  I have pdf ofKapersky report if want to see.
I also ran AVG 2015 and it was clean.
 
Not sure if I should just delete the backup files from my external hard drive.
What other scans can I do to make sure everything is OK?? - I have not noticed anything unusual with computer yet but want to ease my mind.

Hi Everyone,

I have to backup the emails and contacts (email addresses primarily) from several computers. The challenge I am facing is that a mixture of email clients are on the computers that I need to backup. The clients that I am backing up are as follows;

Outlook Express
Outlook XP
Outlook 2007
Windows Mail
Windows Live Mail

I am confident that I have all of the emails backed up, however I am uncertain of where contacts (email addresses) are stored in the above.

Any help with locating the contacts files for the above email clients will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The only workaround that I've found for this is to add a contacts "gadget" to your Sidebar. Then clicking on a contact will open the Compose dialog in Windows Mail.

How do I create an Address Book in Windows Mail - in XP this was so easy - click on Addresses, enter details and a Folder List with all entries was created. Sure I can access Contacts - in Properties I click on Work, I enter details, I now have a list but how do I place this list in an Address Book eg. WAB or Microsoft Exchange ? Please Help !

I received a phone call this morning from my ISP telling me that "major amounts" of emails were sent out yesterday morning using my IP address.  They were not sent from my email account.  My ISP is small town and I don't think they know how to help me, if they do - they're not telling me.  I've run scans on my computers using my antivirus software and they've found nothing.  I'm also not experiencing any noticable problems with my devices.
 
I need to find the problem, my ISP is threatening to cut me off if the emails continue.
 
Thank you!

A:Spam Being Sent from My IP Address

One thing you can try to make sure a previous infection didn't set up your computer as a Proxy Server.  Go to Control Panel ==> Internet Options ==> Connections ==> Lan Settings ==> Proxy Server (Make sure Proxy Server box is not ticked.  If it is untick it.)  If it is ticked, possibly a previous infection set up your computer as a Proxy Server so they can mass email thru your computer.  If not the issue, then need to continue to look.

Outlook 2003 - XP...

I can't figure out why my Address Book and Contacts are different.
I'd like to update my Contacts to be the same as my Address Book, which is where my Outlook goes to address my mail.
I need to export my Contacts to import into my new Mac.
I can't see any way to export the Address book, or even save it to a PAB file, although I must have done it sometime ago when I first set up this system.
I do understand the Contacts is contained as a folder in my PST file.
But where does the Address Book file live and how do I use it to update my Contacts?
Am I crazy?
Thanks,
Ron

I imported my Contacts data from Outlook 2000 to Outlook XP and am trying to use the contacts to address e-mail messages. Some contacts with e-mail addresses will autofill (i.e., the e-mail address appears while I am typing the name) but others never appear, no matter what combinations of first & last names I try. One address even autofills although it isn't in my Contacts!

I haven't been able to find anything about this problem in the MS knowledge base.

I opened my address book up and edited it (adding and deleting anyone I wanted/didn't want). I then closed the address book, and went into outlook and clicked on Contacts. It still shows everything I just deleted, and doesn't show anything new.

I was under the impression the Address Book and Contacts were the same thing. Apprarently not! Anyway, I selected all my contacts, and deleted them. Now my contacts are empty, but my address book is full and what I would like to use. How do I get all those "contacts" from my address book into the Contacts folder within Outlook so when I'm composing an email, I can hit on the New email, then to the TO..(to bring up my contacts)

I am trying to export my contacts into a website where I will send out emails. I manage to successfully do this but the addresses are not from my address book. My address book says to store in contacts which I have done. But I have no idea where the contacts came from and the names I want in the address book aren't in contacts and didn't move over.

It may never be exact. As I remember from switching from WAB/OE to Windows Mail in Vista back in 2007, the WM (new) style displayed the names as last, first after I was used to first last from OE. I believe WLM is closer to WM than OE, but there are some known differences in that not all the detail carried by the older programs is brought to WLM. I would guess your best bet is to use the WAB export/import since it's meant for OE. Then check each contact for errors and get ready to see some info missing and displayed differently.

Can anybody help me. i have a new machine and intend using mozilla thunderbird rather than MS outlook.
Is there a way I can copy contacts from old machine and install in Thunderbird?
 

A:Outlook address book/contacts

Thunderbird can import messages and contacts from Outlook, that's for sure, but I can't find out what format the data must be in for importing. If you export your "Contacts" folder with Outlook's "Import & Export" tool, that will create a PST file which contains all your contact data.

If Thunderbird can import PST files you're good to go. If it can't, your Outlook "Contacts" folder can instead be exported as a 'Comma Separated Values (Windows)' file (CSV) which can be imported into most popular Windows email clients.

Export both formats at same time and I'm sure one of them will be okay for importing into Thunderbird.
I do know it will import Outlook data (I just checked their website) but I've never actually used it to know which file-types it can import.

They don't show up as being sent FROM my sent box.

I woke up to a full inbox of returned mail and out of office automated responses to scores of emails that were apparently sent by me.
I worry about how many emails actually have got through to friends, family, colleagues etc.
It appears a bot has accessed my contacts list - as far as I can make out.

I have run scans through my firewall and anti virus software and also spyware and malaware scans with nothing being found.
Is there anything else I should do?

Hi and welcome to TSG,

Close/disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of SDFix and make sure you are disconnected from the Internet after downloading the program but before extracting the files.
Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with SDFix and remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
Remember to re-enable the protection again afterwards before connecting to the Internet.
Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter
Choose your usual account.

Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to the clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum with a new HijackThis log.
