Some of my friends ask me why their friends in messenger list complain to her/his that he sent a spam. The spam messages sent to all of friends that in Messenger List or Contact List without he knew or he even type the messages at Yahoo Messenger. This Spam usually appears when the users got offline and using Instant Message Services.
When your yahoo account sent spam message automatically like that, that means you account has been injected spam attack / spam activities. To handle that situation, and make your account normal again and not sent a message without you knew, you have to Change your Yahoo / Yahoo Messenger Password.
That’s all, the only thing you should do just change Your Yahoo Password and then the Spam would disappears and you never got complain from your friend again.
This spam forwarding using your yahoo account in Yahoo! Messenger happened because of you account has been stolen its password. Therefore the Spammer capable to use you Account to Sent Message Spam to all of your friend in Yahoo Messenger Contact List.
