|Thanks....the password has been changed....was not aware that several Gmail accounts had been hacked recently.|
My other thought was that an email may have been sent to multiple contacts in a manner that includes several email address in the TO field (rather than blind copy),......and one of those receipients was using a client (Outlook, etc) and that THEIR computer had gotten a Trojan which would examine header info.
If this were the case, then a trojan could have used that info to get my email address (would be in the FROM field).....and used the multiple recipients (in the TO field) as the "spam list" to spoof my name to.
(I hope that made sense).
Does anyone know if the above scenario is a known technique ?
(Basically, using the emails of an infected outlook client pc to garner emails to spoof....and creating several mini "spam lists"....rather than creating the spam list and the spoof email from the primary Outlook account only ?)
