    I started spamming my friends

    Yesterday, I unintentionally spamming my friends. I received over 30 emails from posmaster@mail.hotmail.com saying that my emails could not be delivered even though I had not sent any.
    Apparently I was sending them a link to some site, I did not click on it.

    So, what's happening and what can I do?
    Do I need an anti-virus?
    Did I get infected on xoom or the pc? I'm not using the pc much lately and certainly not downloading much on it. On the other hand, I am downloading and installing unofficial apps on xoom.

    If you use a web based email service, your account has probably been compromised.

    I would definitely change my email. (Gmail is good) I would also contact the other provider and inform them of the situation.

    I already have a gmail account. I use hotmail for games apps and minor things.
    I guess if this continued I will have to terminate the account.
