Hotmail Account Hijacked.

Dear Colleagues

I have just had my Hotmail account hijacked for the second time, and a number of emails have been sent to everyone in my address book purporting to have come from me.

I am on BT Broadband, and running up to date Panda Anti Virus & Firewall.

Anything else I can do to stop this happening again'

Thank you

Talk to Hotmail,i cant see how the account has been hijacked unless you gave your password out most people will know your login name as this is usually your email addy but having a strong password should stop people guessing what it is.You could also try changing your password from time to time.
