Hi, I need help really badly.

I have 5 active yahoo accounts, and 4 out of 5 of them are being spammed (some from the same address). And on them I only registered for Facebook and Ubuntu forums. All reputable sites. Yet, My Yahoo Address #5 is being spammed by the same domain (rr.com it says) as My Yahoo Address #3. I think this is really weird that 2 of my separate Yahoo Accounts gets Spammed by the same attacker (rr.com). How did the Spammer find both of my Addresses? It seems that nearly every Yahoo account I create ends up getting spammed and sent phony spam "friend requests".

I would think I have malware or something except I use Ubuntu (and this happened when I used Windows 11 months ago) and there really is not much malware for Linux. So what do you think is going on? And is my personal data in harms way?
