Why Am I Sending Out Spam?



The question is asked everyday somewhere in the world: why am I sending out spam? The reason is simple. And yes, there’s cause to worry.




Why Am I Sending Out Spam?

If you have noticed suspicious outgoing emails in your inbox or bounced back emails to addresses you have never seen before, your computer may be sending out spam. Common viruses can hijack your email reader and spam random people or, most likely, people in your address book. When people receive spam emails from a trusted friend, they are very unlikely to believe it is spam unless it is quite obvious or after they’ve been sold a questionable product. Stop asking “why am I sending spam?” and start asking “what can I do to stop this?”

The Good And Bad News

The good news is that these viruses are common, usually quite easy to get rid of, and relatively harmless. Unfortunately, the bad news is that if you have one harmless but annoying virus you may have many more, along with other more malicious programs. Crimeware is a type of computer virus that can aid in stealing your identity by logging passwords to sensitive information such as online bank accounts. To rid your computer of these viruses, you must download an antivirus program, which are plentiful and sometimes free.


What Do I Do After Downloading an Antivirus Program?

Once you have downloaded an antivirus program with a good reputation, simply run the program and it should rid your computer of all viruses. It is important to download an antivirus program that is well-trusted. Many people download an obscure antivirus program, run it and find even more viruses; this is because the program was simply malware masked as a useful program. You may also want to invest in a firewall to further safeguard your privacy.

    Unfortunately there is more bad news.

    In most cases, e-mail related viruses are sort of a one time deal. Once they’ve acquired your e-mail information, they copy your list of contacts and begin spamming them from their server UNDER YOUR NAME.

    Therefore, removing the virus from your computer will not always solve the problem.

    The only 100% solution is removing the virus(es) from your computer, getting a new e-mail, and disabling the corrupted one.
