So last night I was browsing Deviant Art, and today an email was sent from my one account to another account of mine with um... naughty pictures. Which would appear to be from DA, but I never looked at any such pictures while there.

 

What could this be...?

Am I infected? What To Do

 

Do you have some sort of Redirect going in the Gmail account. I dont use Gmail. First thing I would do is change the passwords to both accounts.

Lets assume your gmail has been comprimised in some way, They may have found the hotmail because you used it as 1 activation for the Gmail account 2 At some satage sent an email to it. And somebody is fishing for more info.

Could be worse, Everybody in your address book on gmail could have got the same email from you. Did you check that? The BCC and CC bit?

Somebody or Something sent the email.

 

Please note I am only guessing here.

 

Just to be on the safe side DO NOT log into banking etc for now from that pc.

 

Please wait for a Malware Removal Expert to reply.

Ah, that is what you are asking. Yeah. Sorry, I was thinking you meant from my other email.

Alright, will do! Just... just really wish I could explain this... I don't get exactly what happened. It obviously occured around the time I was on DA.
