All of a sudden I have begun getting SPAM messages from a number of people in my address book. Normally, I would expect this to reflect that THEIR email accounts were hacked, but the fact that I'm getting so many within a few days of each other makes me wonder if MY account has somehow been hacked (though I don't know how that would translate into ME getting the messages). The messages appear to come from someone I know, and as with all SPAM they have a generic subject line like "hi" or "check this out". The body always contains some version of:
hey what do you think of this http://msn.msnbc.com-december-18.net/jobs/
I haven't gone to the link to see what it is. Can you please tell me what this means, and if there's something I can do to fix it? Or if it needs fixing?
