Can you read this e-mail header?

To protect the privacy of the parties, I'm editing the names and replacing them with John Doe and Jane Doe. The rest is not being editted.
A friend and I were discussing a matter and suddenly this Jane Doe sent an e-mail to my friend about what we were discussing and my friend never gave their e-mail to anyone for them to know the subject that we were talking about.
I see some numbers and an IP address there between all the garb so maybe you can figure it out.

Everything in the headers above is Yahoo! is Yahoo! Europe is Yahoo! US is Yahoo! US is Yahoo! US

So it has come from someone hacking into a Yahoo account and somehow getting your address. It is all within Yahoo!

"But i would like to meet you" is a standard SPAM subject.

So how do we determine from the above that the spammer knew what you were talking about?

Because we were talking about Jane Doe.
And the e-mail was sent from a Jane Doe.

Our messages between us two had "re: Jane Doe" in the subject line.
And then here comes a message from a Jane Doe.

My friend's address is the @ so that is not the hacker or the phony.
The @ rocketmail is the phony or the pfisher. But phisher's don't normally know what my friend and I were discussing which was shown in our subect lines.

We were discussing their relative and re: Jane Doe" was in the subject line of our e-mails.
Then here comes a message from Jane.Doe @ rocketmail claiming to be Jane Doe.

What I mean is, a spammer's name should not be the name of the person we had been discussing.

Genealogy related is what we were talking about, a lost contact with relative.
Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

I use and people who do not know me from Adam send email to me from phony addresses or from myself sometimes (it looks like I sent it myself). I see my own address in the subject line.

So what you see is no surprise. It is just spam and I don't know why Yahoo did not categorize as spam. It is not the most secure email system.

I cannot tell you how the hacker got your email address, but I have seen this happen to me. All of this goes into the spam bucket.

I wonder if your friend sent a mail to a Yahoo email address (likely) that itself was compromised, and the hacker used this.

It is all social engineering so you will open the email. Then your computer is compromised.

So, what do we do? Change passwords and that is all we can do?
John HurstBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
You should (along with your friend) change your Yahoo! email passwords, but that won't stop the email from coming. You need to blacklist it if you can. That is what I try to do.  The only way I know how to stop this (because it is email) is with spam filtering. The next line of defense is really good Anti Virus software.

Here is a link from ZDNet that talks to my above points about social engineering and specially crafted web pages.  Someone your friend knows probably has been hit with this stuff.
