I'm new here and have registered because I've got an urgent problem - any help would be appreciated:
Someone or something is sending all my contacts spam from my hotmail account. I don't know if they're sending spam from my account directly or if they are simply duplicating my account. I do know that the spam isn't being picked up as spam by work (I work at home and email via a secure VPN) so I'm assuming it's coming directly from me. Any help would be appreciated.
The malware found no infected files and the spyware just picked up adware tracking cookies which I deleted. Any other ideas? I'm currently running Avast anti-virus but otherwise any ideas? Just to add, I looked in my Sent folder and all the guilty emails are there but from IP address 184.108.40.206 which is different from mine. Also, strangely I've no sent emails in my Sent folder for the last 18 months, other than these spoof emails and emails I've written today.
