Hi VE3REO,

 

Please try to change the password of your email and then monitor if it would do the same.

Re: "Look what i found" email

This same thing happened to me at the end of January.

Some malware (maybe a Trojan) made its way to my machine from either a website or an email.

Then, it used by Hotmail contacts or my Outlook contacts (I don't know which) to send a weird email to all my contacts using the email addresses in them with a link in the email.  It did that for a few days.  Some of my contacts let me know it was happening.  The subject in the email was also weird; it just had the characters 'Re:'; and the grammar or sentence structure in the email was very juvenile.

Anyway, I deleted all my contacts on Hotmail; changed all my passwords; went into my Outlook contacts and changed all the email addresses to a non standard format, for example: from joe@server.com to joewhoisatserver.com.  Then, I upgraded from Trend PC-Cillin to Trend Titanium Maximum.  Very drastic measures but so far so good.
