There's a new scam out there where someone receives an email that claims that the person sending the email is going to send everyone in their contact list a message saying that the person is visting porographic web sites.  The email usually contains one of the persons valid password that is currently in use, so they definitely have been hacked somehow/somewhere.

If you've run into this and discovered how they are getting the passwords I would appreciate your sharing the information.  None of the machines show any indication of having malware/viruses on them
