Hacked Yahoo Mail account address book

Q: Hacked Yahoo Mail account address book

Spam emails were being sent to the contacts in my Yahoo contact list from my email account. I think this was done by me mistakenly clicked a link ?msn.msnbc.com-?/jobs? from my friend's email as all the spam emails sent by my yahoo account had similar link.

My PC does have the most updated version of Norton Premier edition and the scan returned with no virus detected. Your assistance in providing the instructions to diagnostic and remove this virus or malware would be greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Hacked Yahoo Mail account address book

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Hacked Yahoo Mail account address book

On 12/20, I received an email from a co-worker with my first name in the subject, and the body that read, "hi Joe check this out http:// msn . msnbc . msnbc-news5 . com / jobs /" (spaced added to prevent recurrence). I had not heard from this person in a long time, so it was unusual to get this from them out of the blue. Second clue was the brevity of the email. I suspected it was spam so I inspected the link and mistakenly identified the domain as msnbc, a legitimate website. However, the real domain is the first string before the top level domain, ".com", and that is "msnbc-news5". Anyone could have registered that. I hovered my mouse over the link and checked the actual link in the browser frame to make sure that the link wasn't masked, and it was not. I then thought, I have the latest Chrome and McAfee SiteAdvisor, if there is malicious software, they will protect me, and I clicked the link. The destination website was a work from home scam, I thought it was not legitimate after all and immediately closed that browser tab. Without my knowledge the cross site script (XSS) started running, and from this point on my browser was sending 7 emails a minute to everyone in my contact list. This went on for 30 minutes. It was possibly shutdown when Yahoo started demanding human verification on each email. Or it may have been when I started receiving Failure Notices in my inbox as the script sent emails to bad email addresses. I checked my sent folder and was extremely alarmed. I held the power button on my computer for 5 seconds to force a power supply hard shutdown. I switched to a different computer and confirmed that the emails had stopped. I began notifying everyone who had received an email from me about the malicious email. Yahoo email will not allow you to send a message to everyone in your contact list, so I had to send 209 emails individually as quickly as possible. Once all email recipients were notified, I started researching the damage. I found other victim's reporting the scam and asking for help dating back to November 12, 2012. Yahoo knows about the issue and is silent. The question appears in Yahoo Answers, they provide no response. The day after the attack, I booted my computer into safe mode with networking by pressing the F8 key during startup. I ran McAfee virus scan, Trend Micro, Norton, and Windows Defender and nothing was found (Norton reports cookies as possibly harmful because they are used for tracking to present targeted ads, and the information in them may be used against you by a XSS). I found no evidence that the hard drive of my computer was altered in any way. The motive appears to be to get people to sign up for the work from home scam. The way I suspect it works is that somewhere on the fake MSNBC website there is a call to a Yahoo database into which the hacker has placed an XSS. It executes, reads the Yahoo cookie that contains your email session credentials (Yahoo needs this to function) and uses these to impersonate you to Yahoo's servers composing and sending new emails. It doesn't get your Yahoo password, but I changed mine anyway. I contacted McAfee to find out why my up to date SiteAdvisor didn't prevent the display of a website that has been known to be malicious for over a month. It turns out SiteAdvisor integrates into Chrome to display threat ratings next to search results. It doesn't prevent you from visiting a harmful website.

Hi there,

I'm hoping somebody can help!

My Hotmail account has been copromised in some kind of way. It keeps sending out e-mails with the subject of 'Hi' and the base of the message includes a link to a site called easybuyshopcn.com. I also lost all my e-mails in my inbox for the last 2 months. I scanned my computer using Norton, Spybot S + D and Lavasoft Ad-Aware and have cleared all of the results but it still seems to be sending these e-mails out automatically.

I have done a scan using Hijack This and have attached the log file.

If anyone can help at all, I'd be really graetful.

Thanks for taking the time to read...

Good afternoon everyone:
 
Yesterday morning, I went to check my yahoo email account.
 
In the spam folder I noticed a email to me from one of my other Yahoo accounts that I use when I sign up to online forums.
 
I obviously didn't send it to myself, so did some investigating.
 
I don't have any contacts in that account, and it looks like the spam email was sent to the two addresses I had in the sent folder, although the spam email itself was NOT in the sent folder. Nothing in the account settings appears to have been changed.
 
I logged into that Yahoo account. When I checked in the account information section, it showed someone had accessed my email at 4:14 am from Thailand via Yahoo Mobile.
 
I don not use Yahoo mobile, and in fact own no mobile devises capable of using the internet. I went to another computer in the house and immediately changed the password for that Yahoo account.
 
So, the question i have is, does my system have an infection, or is it an issue on Yahoo's end?
 
I have run full scans of my system using Norton Internet Security 2012 (up to date), Malwarebytes and SUPERantispyware. All came back 100% clean. Could there be something on my system these programs aren't picking up? Should I try running them with windows in safe mode?

I thought this might be malware but I had a scan done on this site ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1015729 ) and logs look clean. Running XP, Spybot Search and Destroy, and AvAst Antivirus... with Opera 9.62 and IE7 anytime I go to Yahoo mail and try to sign out, I can't. It brings me to www.yahoo.com, then if I click on their "mail icon" I am brought right back to my mailbox. Also, when I try to attach a file, when I click "attach" I am directed to www.yahoo.com and can never attach. Finally, when I click on "insert address" while composing mail, I am brought to the signin/password page. None of this happens with Gmail, none of this happens with these accounts on other computers. I think it is cookies/firewall? related but I am no expert. Can anyone help? Thanks!Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hi there,
 
I wondered if someone could please offer me a little advice about a problem I’ve been having for a number of weeks.
 
I have a Yahoo Mail account and recently received a message from my service provider informing me that the security of my account had been compromised and that I should run a system scan and change my password.  
 
I ran a system scan right away and changed my password and I thought that this was the end of the issue.
 
Then in the last couple of weeks, I’ve been receiving numerous messages from ‘Mail Delivery System’ informing me:
 
‘Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender’
 
The thing is, I have NOT been sending the messages that are being returned to me – messages are being sent by someone (posing as me) to my contacts.
 
Some of these messages are actually getting through to my contacts, but a large majority are failing to get through and are being returned. 
 
I have opened the ‘failed messages’ and I can see that whoever is sending these messages is also sending an attachment.  The attachment has MY FIRST NAME as the title (which concerns me a lot) and the file type is ‘.eml’ (which I believe may be a virus).
 
I have checked my ‘sent’ folder and there is NO record of these emails being sent.

This morning my msn email account had letters from family letting me know that my msn address has been sending emails from my account that contain malicious links. When that family member clicked on the link it started downloading and could not be stopped until she used control/alt/delete to shut off the computer.

Yesterday I had just opened an email account with Gmail and imported my address book. Is this related? Or maybe, is this problem tied to when the gaming system PS3 had its data hacked a few months back--personal data areas were hacked that included email, credit cards, and passwords, etc.? Either way, I need to find where the problem is and fix it.

I went to MSN Live solutions center, downloaded and ran their recommended tool to locate problems--a quick scan found nothing. I am running Nortons Antivirus that came with my Qwest MSN account. My main computer is running XP Media edition, 32 bit, with service pack 3.

Please help me locate the trouble and fix this. I have sent a warning email to my whole address book from my new Gmail account to hopefully prevent others from getting this.

A:MSN email address book hacked, sending malicious links

Update--so far MSN says it sounds like a virus, but nothing was found. We reset the computer to an earlier date, about 8 days earlier, and then Norton's wouldn't run. It had 3 error codes; 3043,1 3040,20011 and 3040,20063. Nortons Fix it didn't work on these codes and after following their recomendations, it still didn't work. Finally uninstalled Nortons and reinstalled. Ran quick scan, found 8 small problems and it fixed those. Ran again as full scan, found 4 more concerns and automatically repaired those as well.

Ran Microsoft Safety Scanner for full scan- nothing found. Ran SpyBot search and destroy--nothing found.

Talked to Qwest, because they were the number Norton's sent me too (Qwest provides my DSL). Qwest took the info and looked at my email account. They noticed the virus links all end in /world.html and many have more in common like modules/Search/world.html Qwest is looking into that, but who knows if they will find where this started? Qwest did say that copies of email sent from my MSN account were being sent to another account, my husband's email. We checked his account- non of my emails are there, except the spam email with the virus link.

This makes me worry--is someone intercepting my email? Maybe I didn't understand. My husband's email is on my account as an alternate in case something happens.

ProblemYAHOO address book pops "up" beneath the current window, when I click on "To:", while writing mail. I then have to click on its icon on the bottom bar to use it.BackgroundI've been using YAHOO for years. The address book has always popped up on top -- which makes perfect sense. The only reason to call it is to use it. Of course, you have to see it to use it.I just switched to IE 7 and have had trouble getting my pop-up management back where it should be. I reset settings in Pop-up Blocker (yes, I found that) ... then thought my google bar installation (also blocks pop-ups) might have been screwed up when IE 7 was installed (I didn't have to reinstall Google tool bar).But well .... kind of looks like maybe rebooting after resetting Pop-up Blocker did the trick for many of my problems; Right now except for one that I know of.

A month ago our Yahoo mail account began emailing all our contacts in our address book. The emails were showing up in our sent items folder. We removed all our contacts from the Yahoo address book. We ran all the scans we could: Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Hijack This, etc. as well as full scan on Norton without anything found. We recently created a new Yahoo mail account and added a few fake addresses to our contact list to see if anything popped back as undeliverable -- nothing did for weeks. At that point we felt that the new account was probably safe and copied all our previous contacts into the new account. Yikes, today it began trying to send emails to 20+ people again (I only saw them because they wound up in our drafts folder somehow). Please help, I think this computer has a hidden virus or bot or malware. Any help greatly appreciated.

Our yahoo mail account was hacked a few days ago and was used to send out a spam website address to people listed in sent mail and contacts. Don't know if this is new but, yahoo has a log that shows who logged in to your account that was available and it showed that someone from Indonesia had logged into our account and a minute or 2 later the spam emails were sent out.
I immediately changed our password and notified yahoo about the break-in.
I was assuming that the problem is at yahoo and not on our computer?
 
Thanks.
 

A:yahoo email account hacked

Thanks for letting us know how you handled this immediately
--- Changing your password and notifying Yahoo was definitely the right thing to do
--- Yahoo has been catching quite a bit of heat recently in some other posts
--- However, if it's a password issue, that isn't Yahoo's fault than I can tell
 
Unfortunately when it is a password issue, even after it's changed, from what I've read, a hacker can have used an alias account to continue what they are doing if they wish to do so
--- I haven't saved any of the articles pertaining to this but if I ever find another one, I probaly should post it asking for opinions on whatever is written
--- Maybe someone can chime in on this perception I have from reading such information

My daughter wants to change her hotmail account to a yahoo email account. Is there a way she can transport her hotmail "contacts" into her yahoo email address book?
 

A:transport hotmail contacts to yahoo address book?

Hi MRBEE

I don't know of an easier way, someone else might.

Start a new message, click the To: button.
Add all the Contacts to the To: window.
Select all the Contacts in the To: window and Cut them, Paste the Contacts in the body of the message.

The Contacts would then appear as:
[email protected],[email protected],[email protected] etc.

The Contacts can then be edited to appear on their own line by clicking Enter at each comma and removing the comma before sending the message so they look like this:
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
Send the message to the new Yahoo account.

She might be able to use Quickbuilder for the Yahoo Address Book to add the addresses.
It did not work all that well for me.

I have looked it over several ways, and there just does not seem to be an easy way to share the Hotmail Contacts with another messaging program.
Hopefully, as I said earlier, someone else has a better way.

I didn't find any way to contact Yahoo support on the Yahoo website. It's just one help/FAQ page after the other...

Two days ago my contacts received a spam message from me which I did not send saying I am stranded in the Philippines. However, there was no suspicious activity in my "Recent activity" log and the message was not in my "Sent" folder so I reasoned that I wasn't hacked but what happened was spoofing. Right? I changed my password anyway.
 
But now, I'm not receiving any emails sent to me by friends. My friends receive a MAILER-DAEMON failure notice telling them that the message they wrote me couldn't be sent "to the following address": [email protected] But that username which is supposed to be mine is actually different from mine by one character (there's an extra "o")! Also, my contacts have all disappeared from my Contacts list; but they do appear in the drop-down menu when I compose a new message, in the "To" field. What is all this about? Please help.

Hi - Yahoo account - never used on mobile phones tabs - ONLY used on home wifi machines -windows box, laptop and android tablet.
Discovered a "recent activity " of SAFARI IOS .. uh oh. I have no Apple devices or use safari.
How Yahoo let a session with different device and browser in without two step verification is very troubling , and if so, how they got past it ( my phone ) really freaks me out .

I immediately changed password , which deleted this recent activity log , all i've posted is what i saw - the city was correct .but no IP to see if it was from my service provider and just a browser heading error ( I wish..)
There has been NO changes to my account that i can see, ive changed all passwords , checked email forwarding and settings done al the stuff ive read to do - but i am really shaken .,

If someone went to all that trouble to get through two step verification then they must have done something..
I found out I have to write to Yahoo to request log on history. I am hoping this will give me insight to what the extent of hackers activity was.

I am only using direct cable internet access now in case it was neighbour.

What should i do next? and is there any chance it was a wrong browser interpretation?

Thanks for any light your experience could shed on this
 

A:Yahoo account with 2 step verify hacked -how? what next?

I have moved this to general security, because it doesn't appear to be an issue that involves malware cleaning on your computer

Yahoo along with other websites that keep and allow you to access log in information, do quite often make mistakes about browser detections
I frequently get facebook alerts warning me about a log in from an unknown browser or computer, shortly after I log in using IE11
It get told it is safari, firefox, Mozilla or chrome. It almost never says IE11. It gives my current IP number but a totally different location

Changing passwords and making sure 2 step authentication is a good idea and helps to prevent problems and unwanted access
It does sound like Yahoo is being its usual inefficient self and misidentifying you.

Last week, I clicked on a pop-up disguised as a warning about an attack from Microsoft Security Essentials. The situation felt terribly familiar to what I had done last year with an infected pop up disguised to look like Microsoft Security Center. Both times I backed out without fully downloading and the last time I was for sure left with an infection.

The symptoms are different, though. At that time, the security software I was using (Windows Live One Care, I think) kept detecting & removing the infection - which would just have returned (and sometimes with some friends) by the next scan.

This time, MSE detected and removed 4 programs (they were also listed as quarantined items - which have since been removed through the MSE control panel). Since they were removed, all MSE scans come back clean. I also downloaded and ran TrendMicro House Call which came back clean as well.

If your Yahoo Mail has been hacked, first go to: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/classic/contacts/spam-03.html for help from Yahoo Mail.
You must do this ASAP in order to have a chance of restoring your messages and saving your Address Book/Contacts.

TO RESTORE YOUR YAHOO MAIL MESSAGES:
If you use Yahoo! Mail Classic: click here.
If you use the All New Yahoo! Mail: click here.

TO RESTORE ADDRESS BOOK/CONTACTS LIST:
To restore your Yahoo! Address Book, fill out this restoration form. You must do this within 24 hours in order to have a chance of saving your Address Book.

TO REPORT THE ABUSE TO YAHOO + IDENTIFY THE HACKER:
Go to this page and fill out the form: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/classic/abuse.html

You will be asked for specific information regarding the hacked email, including the HEADER – which IDENTIFIES the HACKER. The way this works is that the hacked email message itself contains certain information in the Header relating to the hacker's identity. The Header contains an Internet Protocol (IP) address that corresponds to the sender's Internet service provider (ISP).

To located the Header:
1. Select and Open the hacked email.
2. Look to the very bottom-right corner of the email and select Full Headers.
3. You'll then see a long list of technical information, most of which will not be easily readable.

Nothing was changed in Hotmail to my knowledge, i.e. contact list was not deleted. I deleted the contents myself and left only a second email I use to see if more messages get sent out. So far nothing today....


I hope I'm being thorough enough, but if I could provide anything more, please let me know.

Ok, long story short, I'm trying to find a girlfriend right now, and while I feel like I'm knowledgeable enough to stay safe, I think one may have slipped through the cracks.

A girl claiming to be from craigslist emailed me and said she was interested. She sent pics, the scan didn't pic up on anything, I downloaded them. They were all .jpg files, and I figured only .exe or other weird extensions would be viruses or the like. After sending pics back and forth, I wanted her to prove she was real, and send I wouldn't send anything else until she did. She then said "That's fine..." and attached was a photo I *think* came from my computer. I haven't been able to find the photo in question on my computer, so it may mean they TOOK IT from my computer somehow, or some other explanation may be to blame.

For now, I'm assuming very bad hack. This is alot worse, because I do my banking online. While I know they have secure servers, I had some credit card info saved in temporary files I think. So now, I'm on my roommate's computer, I took my hacked computer offline, I'm running AVG Anti-Virus, Malware Bytes, and Spybot all at the same time, I deleted all my internet files (I pretty much only use chrome), and I obviously deleted all files related to the incident.

In addition in one of facebook pages igoogle apps have been added. I have been offered friends directly from my yahoo email contacts & a few days ago after I deleted my facebook pages a few communication emails with facebook (incl. offered friend) have been erased from my email address & I hardly use the email address which was half frozen.
The password of yahoo emails had to be changed extremely often because I couldn’t get the signing window with the security seal. In addition when I typed on firefox the email ulr it has been changed to another ulr & I received the wrong signing window. Chrome couldn’t find such ulr.
2 months ago I booted my computer to factory state, but everything has returned. I have run daily scans by McAfee which few days ago first time found & deactivated almost 200 trojans/cookies. Windows Defender also quarantined a few programs. In additions I have run scans by malware bytes, spy doctor, spy bot & agv but none have found malware.10bt malware fighter found windows registry, short cuts, privacy & junk files faulty.
How I get out of this mess?
