I opened a message from a friend's eddress and it was from a spammer. I\ncontacted friend who didn't realize what had happened but did a complete\nvirus scan and found nothing. There was a long list of eddresses in the "To"\nbox. So the message was undoubtedly from spyware that had commandeered their\ncontacts list.\n\nI found no viruses on my computer but I'm worried.\nI blocked my friend's eddress and they are planning to get a new eddress.\n1. Is there a chance that this spammer can get control of my contacts list\nthis way?\n2. Is there anything else I should do?\n3. Does "hiding" eddresses in the "BCC" box (instead of the "To" or "CC"\nbox) help to prevent spammers from doing this or is that useless?
