    Has anyone had a problem with someone other than yourself using your email contacts to send emails to your contacts? I use yahoo email and 7 of my contacts including Amazon a bank and my personal contacts were sent unappealing emails. I do not believe the problem exists on my PC, although I'm scanning right now. Just wonder whether there could be a problem with our Vizio tablets or possibly with any android tab.

    Never heard of that happening with an Android device, but it happens all the time with MS Windows PCs - esp. when the users are using MS Outlook or MS Outlook Express.

    Loaded the yahoo app on my moms tab and today she had an alert saying her account had been flagged for suspicious activity.

    I'm wondering if my problem with the contacts being hacked is a yahoo problem. My original post concerned hacking of a few contacts using yahoo mail, and this latest post mentioned yahoo account.

    Anyone else with this problem using any other email program?
