phony emails from my Yahoo contacts
Recently I began getting phony emails from people in my Yahoo email contacts list. The subject line is always "Hi" and when I open the email, it says something like "check this out" and then it gives a link to some website I'm not familiar with. I never clicked on the links, I just deleted the emails.
Norton 360 indicated there were no problems with my computer security. I'm trying to understand if my computer itself has been "hacked" (whatever that means), or if it isn't my computer that's been hacked, it's my Yahoo account somewhere out there in Cyberspace. I just did a Full Scan with 360, it said it found 93 problems and resolved all of them.
Can anyone address whether my computer itself was compromised by this problem?
