Someone has hacked all contacts on Gmail and

Specs: Macintosh
Someone has managed to access all my contacts on googlemail and my Facebook account. They are sending messages from a site called NETLOG asking people to view my photo's. Everyone is receiving this message. I do not belong to NETLOG. I also received invitations from friends to join NETLOG, and on enquiring, none of these friends had even heard of netlog. How has this happened? I thought having a MAC prevented this type of thing. As you can guess, I am not very IT savvy! Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Kim

Hacking Internet email accounts has nothing to do with your PC or type of machine. Opening emails from unknown sources is potentially dangerous to anyone. Chances are someone has either guessed or found your passwords to these sites. Logging on and changing the passwords may re-secure those accounts. If they have changed the password, you may need to send lots of emails to prove you're the original owner. Worse case, you have to create new accounts.
" I do not belong to NETLOG" ...your account does, now....

If you run into a problem, post it. Someone will give you insight to the problem.
