Got hacked

Emails went out at 4AM ish. 

My PC was scrubbed last night and it was turned off at that time in the morning when the email was sent. Location at time of hacker login was POLAND.

Do not open mail sent to you that doesnt have a header.

Not only that there is NO sent mail record in my mail.  My mail is set to keep the mail I sent.  So these hackers look like they are getting into yahoo.

Have a huge contact list in yahoo, so I see all the fail on old emails.  Otherwise I would not have known I was hacked.

Arynwy commented, but I am raising it here-

"My brother is convinced that the hackers now have someone inside Yahoo. His IT security group has a clean control machine with multiple dummy accounts for Yahoo, Gmail, MS Live and other major providers. The accounts are NEVER accessed with other devices - only this one machine with a dedicated IP.

The machine is not used for net surfing and the accounts have dummy address books (control addresses that they've created and never use for real world application).

This machine is as secure as a professional group can make it. The dummy yahoo account was hacked this morning."

So far every victim has had a login from a differnt IP address in differnt countries.  My PC is crystal clean.  I've been going crazy trying to find out what allowed the hack.   One thing I did read is if the preview pane is up, it is the same as clicking.  But I dont use preview pane because I find it annoying..LOL.  

However, from what I can find this thing prys open your cookies to get at a password.  I am thinking it can be this because I cant locate any keylogger software.  

I really wish people would expose these folks with photos and names on the internet, so we can hunt them down and  smash their equipment.

Yep - I opened it. Shit. I didn't twig it until I received another email from someone totally unknown with the same (more or less address). I hope I don't get hacked. I'm not in the mood to start a new email address.

You dont need a new email address. Change you passwords.

i got this from Arynwy

They got me too... I have two email accounts or I wouldn't have known a thing. It sent to my other email so I went to check and holy crap! I had to laugh though, all the failures only a few were sent to my contacts, (which were old anyway and have new addresses) most were went to places like craig's list, the ones that say do not reply. But they were not in my address book either.

My log in was about the same time but from Australia.

This time I did NOT click on it. Good grief. So sorry this happened to you.

I think they've been hitting Yahoo hard. They got me yesterday. But I've gotten several from friends. Even without opening them! I hope Yahoo is working on it.

This stroy makes alot of sense. because I've been on the local personal PC all mornign trying to figure out what it is. My PC is so squeaky clean. I have done the password change at least 3 times =). If it is an insider, there is NOTHING anyone can do. But that's the point? Annoy folks?

Also, everyone that has been hit has been accessed from a differnt IP location, and often outside the USA.

I got one from you. About a German baby group, judging by the link - which I did NOT click.

Yahoo must have crap security.

See Arynwy's comment. Nothing anyone can do if you got an insider.
