    email account hijacked

    I have a sbcglobal.net email account with ATT DSL service. I have been notified by friends that my email account has been hijacked and they are getting malicious emails from my sbcglobal.net account. How do I get the bad guys off my email account?

    First step would be to change your password and your "forgot password" questions....  then do a virus scan on your computer, they got your password some how.
