My friend's AOL.COM email account was hacked!

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Been a long time so my membership had to be renewed. Anyway . . .

A friend's AOL email addy has been hacked. I want to included the full header in case anyone knows of or has experienced this. Here's the full header from the email I received from her aol account:

She hasn't completely dropped aol: has kept the "screen name" and can still send email. She uses Thunderbird to send from her aol account. She thought the problem was solved when she deleted all the entries from her addressbook FROM aol.com itself. And yes, it did appear to temporarily solve the problem. But today, I received 3 emails from her aol account [she does have another account with a local ISP she is using and apologizing to others who have received the bogus emails from :oops: :oops: ]. I included the header from just one of the emails.

Hope this is enough info for you. If you need more, let me know. I traced the email addy and it's from Brazil, from virtua@virtua.com.br

The IP addy: at LACNIC

If anyone can help, please HELP!! Wondering if she completely drops the aol account, can these hairballs still send from an aol account that no longer exists? I know they can "mask" her email addy so it appears to come from her but if the address no longer exists, how can they do that OR can they once it's been deleted. Does aol somehow have the address STILL in their database? I don't know what or how to even ask questions to help her resolve this. So, if you can please help. Trust me, it will be appreciated by me, her and all the folks getting VERY irritated with her!!

Thanks SOOO much,
