My yahoo email account appears to have been hacked and has sent emails to all my contacts and for now it is sending spam to unknown email addresses. I have just performed a MS Security Essentials Scan and that removed to exploit:java things. I also ran Rkill and this is the report:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\PIF\{B8E1DD85-8582-4c61-B58F-2F227FCA9A08}\PIFSvc.exe
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\PIF\{B8E1DD85-8582-4c61-B58F-2F227FCA9A08}\PIFSvc.exe

Is this related? Could someone please advise me what to do.

Thanks in advance

Per the nice, if inefficient people at Yahoo this is a problem on their server. Unfortunately they don't know how to fix the problem and after a month of my calling are, in fact, still investigating.

For an amusing conversation try calling yahoo customer service at: 408-349-1572.

If anyone else knows how to get this resolved, I'd appreciate knowing too!
