for those with Hotmail (important, but not robot related)
« on: February 02, 2010, 09:04:56 PM »
Its come to my attention that several forum members, who specifically use hotmail, have had their accounts hacked.

Your email has been relaying spam to everyone on your email list (such as to me).

The email contains only a spam link, probably a virus, that looks like:
http://sites.google.com/site/[link removed to protect you]

So if you use hotmail, change your password NOW!

(probably related to the recent massive Hotmail hack http://blogs.zdnet.com/igeneration/?p=3015)

That explains a few things. And here i was trying to help my friend scan his computer for viruses (because i was getting the emails from him).

Oh, pick me, pick me! It's odd though, mine only sent out 7 emails while i have ~90 contacts?
