Have just logged into my hotmail today and have had the following vacation e mail set into my account

"Hey,

I would like to introduce you a very good company and its website is http://www.cyecraft.com It can offer you all kinds of electronic products that you may be in need,such as laptops ,gps ,TV LCD,cell phones,ps3,MP3/4,motorcycles and etc........
You can take some time to have a check ,there must be something interesting you 'd like to purchase .
The contact
Email: [email protected]

Hope you can enjoy yourself in shopping from that company !

Is it only my e mail they could have hacked or got any other info from my computer?

Any help appreciated

The above e mail was sent from my hotmail to all my contacts and then set as a vacation message so anyone who would e mail me would get this back as well

Just running my AVG now

Sounds like a spambot. Think about downloading Malwarebytes and superantispyware to run scans as well as AVG. If possible change your email password on another PC.

That's the first thing you should change, it's crap and this is the second thread in as many days, with someone who has AVG with virus issues, and it let it on through and did not pick it up...........Just incase you thought that opinion is unfounded, google how bad it is.........


Thanks for the advice tinkerbell will definitely look at changing, have never had any other issues before and only recently started using AVG so will definitely look at changing.

Thanks
