Hijacked AOL Account
Posted on 2011-05-05
Gentlemen: I'm trying to assist a friend whose AOL identity has apparently been hijacked, as spurious messages are being sent around the world to all his contacts. It is important to him to keep, if possible, his AOL email address is it is a well established business asset. I have run appropriate antivirus and antimalware scans, and the only seeming significant finding was Malware Bytes came up with something calle Hijack.Display Properties. I am also aware that keylogging code may also be present, and I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you might have regarding this and any other measures that should be taken to secure his account, if possible.
