Spam email from myself?

#1English SmokerPosted 6/17/2012 8:13:04 AM
I got a few spam emails (one of those automated ones selling viagra or something) from my own email address. How badly compromised am I here? I changed my password last week (strong password). Pretty sure I never fell for any phishing schemes. Don't really see how my email got hacked.

Your email address was probably spoofed. I'd assume it's probably not hard to do, if you know what you are doing.

They may just be spoofing your address, which does not require your address to have been hacked or your computer to have been compromised.

It could be a sign from god trying to tell you something.

Don't worry, erectile dysfunction is common in men.
