Someone has hijacked my email and is sending links to all of my contacts!

Posted

Just got online to find I have 38 failure notices from emails I didn't send. In a copy of each message, there is a link at the bottom for something I've never heard of, and it appears that someone is sending these links in my name to everyone on my contact list. What should I do???

Hi Robin!

I'm sorry to hear that.

Unfortunately this is the Firefox support forum and you will need to find help in your email provider.

For now, I will recommend you to change the password of your email address. I can't give you the specific steps because that changes from provider to provider.

Best, Ibai
