Hacked?

Post by kuthu » 01 May 2008 22:17

After installing TMNF, using my junk email and my junk password and having some fun with it, about 2 hours later, I was told by my brother that my junk e-mail was hacked (My junk e-mail used the same junk password).

I logged in to my junk email over at hotmail and saw that it was indeed hacked, all of my mail messages were deleted, and I saw that it had sent emails out to the 5~ people that were automatically added to my contacts. Not a huge deal, but I feel a bit violated.

The e-mails were something about buying shoes.

I'm not blaming TMNF, but it's an odd coincidence. So I was wondering if anyone else had this happen to them? I tried searching the forums, to no avail. I played the old TMN all the time with no problem like this. I have confirmed I do not have a keylogger, or any other 3rd party software on my computer running without me knowing. Especially since all of my other accounts, for e-mail and games are perfectly fine.

So, anyone? Or am I just this unlucky.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, that the time stamp on the e-mails were AFTER I signed up for TMNF, if this is all just one huge coincidence, I'm terribly sorry for bringing this up.

I've never had any problems of the sort, I've had TMNF since it came out. Sounds like a coincidence.
