My email was hacked and so everyone in my contacts got sent a spam which might have been a virus. The first I knew of it was opening my mail to see I had one hundred new messages. Most were fortunately saying the spam could not be delivered, so happily most friends and contacts obviously have pretty good security.
I had another couple from friends who thought it looked dodgy and wanted to know if I had sent it; one saying thank-you and how nice to hear from me; one from a friend who couldn’t open it and was mustard-keen to know what it was about.
It wasn’t the account I use here, and hopefully, it won’t have made its way to any other of my email addresses.
I contacted the service provider who promptly blocked my account. The next stage, getting a new code to reset my password, took far longer than the promised few minutes.
