automated mails sent from hotmail

Recommended Posts


I ran into heavy privacy abuse as I may call it.

During the past hour 6 automated mails about a new version of world of warcraft, all with the same title and contents, were sent from my hotmail address to several other addresses.

I am not a gamer and I don't have the game or an illegal version installed on my pc.

Is this a matter of 'just' an infected pc or is something else going on?

I haven't been able to change my password yet sinds the reference e-mail is outdated and the confirmation mails to recent addresses don't come through.

I just found out that the spam like mails are even sent while I am not logged in!

Thanks for your answer, malware bytes is running

I just tried mailwasher but unfortunately it can only be used for pop3 like e-mail.

What's the difference between msn and regular hotmail?

I searched for blocking options but only incoming mail can be blocked or filtered.

Go to your inbox, Look for Options, drop down to more Options Look for Preventing junk email then look for Safe & Blocked Senders, click on that, enter the address of the sender you want blocked.....

Right Now I would go up to Post number # 3 and follow those instructions -- see that you did not catch anything....

Yes, those posts crossed eachother, i'll post to the hijack this forum.

I cannot use the hotmail filters since all the mails are sent in my name and using my e-mail address to only different receivers.

It's all outgoing.

thanks for all the help so far.
