Spam Alert!

Some ass-jack is hacking into yahoo email accounts and spamming the contacts in the contact list!
Including mine!
My apologies to anyone who received any spam from me!

Per Yahoo:

Spam is being sent to my contacts from my Y! email account
Last Updated: February 23, 2011

Some users have reported that their contacts received spam that originated from from their Yahoo! email account. This issue has been affecting multiple email providers with the spam containing a URL soliciting prescription medicine.

If you've experienced this issue, we strongly believe your account has been compromised and was used by an unauthorized third party to send spam or fraudulent emails to your contact list.

Please change your Password. By changing your password immediately, you quickly minimize the resulting risk for your Yahoo! account. For help selecting a strong password and/or safeguarding it against misuse, please review the tips posted in the password section of the Yahoo! Security Center.

We also suggest you perform a virus scan on your computer(s) if you haven't already done so.

 Again I apologize for this BS.


  1. my email is limited to those whom am wanting mail from; new contacts are screened off as suspected spam til added to address book.

    it is tedious, but damn safer than recieving some twelve years old porn ad or another nigerian love letter.


  2. Yeah, I keep getting "29 and single" stuff, saying we've actually met! Oh my wife loves those, damn near caused a divorce! Wasn't from you though. F*#&ing spammers PI$$ me off!!
