Hacked Email?

 

For a couple of days now I’ve been receiving emails telling my message couldn’t be delivered; and the message (which I haven’t sent) clearly is spam. I’m not a computer expert by any means, so cannot tell what exactly the problem is, and even less how to stop it and fix it.

For that reason, and adding to it too many activities right now that are taking all my available time, I’ll be closing my emails to prevent being used by someone. I hate spam, and the last thing I want is appear as another spammer flooding your inbox.

If you have received a spam email from raulojeda, please accept my apologies for the inconvenience and rest assured it is not me and this blog trying to do such thing. As soon as time allows, I’ll go into the problem and try to fix it, although most probably I’ll have to leave the task to an expert in the field.

For a moment I thought to Copy and Paste one of the emails here, so if any of my readers could enlighten me on what exactly it is, and maybe how to stop it, it’ll give me the opportunity to work on the problem, but then I decided not to do so since I don’t understand all the technical wording of the email and became afraid of doing such thing could means publishing sensitive information about this blog that could open the door to hackers.

Still, if you have any suggestion, I’m all ears (or eyes).

If time allows I’ll try to keep posting, and the comment section will remain open, but the communication through the Contact form and any other form of communication that implies using Alien Ghost emails will be stopped for a while.

Thank you for your understanding of the matter  :)

  1. Raul,
    I can’t remeber if you are using a web based mail, like yahoo, gmail, or hotmail. If you are, you likely just need to change your password. That will prevent anyone from using your account to send out spam.

    If you are using an email client on your computer like Outlook, you’ll need to run an antimalware software. My favorite for this is Malwarebyte’s Antimalware. You can google search it to find the download. It’s free to use and should clean up any malware on your local computer. You should also update your antivirus software and scan your system. If you don’t have any antivirus, you can download Microsoft Security Essentials for free and it does a decent job.

    Raul,

    My daughter had this problem with Google mail and she changed her password, which fixed it.

    I appreciate the comment of Eric. I have never heard of Malwarebyte’s Antimalware. As I use Outlook, I’ll be checking into this.

    Thanks for this post and the information. I hope everything get fixed soon:~)

    Good luck, my friend!

    Hi Sara,

    Thank you for your worries!

    The email thing seems to be fixed, but I’ve been really busy lately so I just visit and “read and run” my friends blogs. I hope next week I can separate a little time to post something and let people know I’m still alive :)

    Thanks again!

    Raul
