It started a few days ago and has been persistent whenever the computer is active, whether I'm using Outlook or not. There is a 'bong' and I know that my unwelcome piggybacker has logged on as me and has sent out messages. I don't know if any have actually been despatched because what I get is error messages: 'A message could not be sent' followed by 'Logon failure: unknown username or bad password' followed by '5.7.3 Authentication unsuccessful'
What is going on? has anybody else had a similar 'attack'?
I received an e mail today supposed to be from BT Customer Service saying my e mail has been infected with a Trojan Virus & to click on a link which says Recover Now (which is supposed to delete the virus).
Is this a genuine e mail or spam/hacker etc?
OK, it looks from the number of posts made here that there has been a new spate of spam attempts,
If you are unsure of any email claiming to be from BT please forward this to email@example.com who can help prevent further attacks as well as help with compromised accounts.
You can also contact us for help with this and I assure you we will do everything we can to get this back to its uncompressed secure state and keep it that way.
