- Can tracking cookies do this? I mean can tracking cookies have the ability to send an e-mail using your e-mail address if given the right circumstances?
- Where could I typically have gotten my Yahoo! e-mail compromised? I hardly enter it anywhere else and I only log in on computers that I'm sure doesn't have any malware in it. Could it be possible that this happened because I opened a certain website? I never use e-mail clients, I open my e-mails directly at the Yahoo! Mail page.
- As anybody would typically do, upon noticing that my e-mail account was being used to send spam, I immediately changed my password. When I did, Yahoo! showed me a list of the affected apps because of my password change. Now here's something peculiar, as you can see on this screenshot, I enclosed in a box an application that I think I haven't seen before nor did I allow it's usage of my Yahoo! account. My big question for this is how did that app get a hold of my approval? As you can also see on that screenshot, it's configured to allow this app to read, change, or overwrite data that you might have in Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Address Book which ultimately looks fishy. What can you say about that?
Please do respond to this thread of mine. I want to know more about these things so that I may not fall victim again. I hope you guys won't ignore this thread. Please and thank you.
