Wonderful SBC/Yahoo email hacked

I guess yahoo is giving out passwords like candy!
Noticed my email was sending out spam this morning ,finally got my password changed after calling att. I only do email on line , no POP3 so I don't think its a Trojan on my computer but I will run scans this evening.

There was a vulnerability exploited a while back:

»Nearly Half a Million Yahoo Passwords Leaked

Have you ever used Yahoo! Voices?

Not sure what else might be going on.

I heard about that back in July, but I checked for mine in the list and it wasn't there. No Yahoo voices. Luckily it was sending just spam emails with a link in it for making money. No hardcore stuff. I caught it before it sent too many. It was sending them out to addresses in my contact folder. What alerted me was i have some old addresses that are not any good anymore and they bounced back to my in-box.
