    Receiving SPAM from myself

    In the last week or so I've started receiving a lot of SPAM apparently sent by me to me. When I check the properties of the "From" address it links back to my email.

    I've run a deep system scan with BitDefender and there are no viruses or spyware. I've also scanned with SpyBot and got the same results, except for 1 cookie.

    My IP provides a spam, virus and spyware filter, and I have BitDefender set to scan all incoming mail and downloads and it seems to do a pretty good job. My IP said to do a virus scan and if that don't work to change my email address. It's not that simple as I have that email address on a lot of resumes and job applications at this time.

    Any suggestions? It's annoying more than anything.

    It's more likely (much more actually) that someone else who has your email address in their address book has got infected with an emailing worm and is sending out those emails to everyone in the address book, you included. That sort of thing actually happens fairly often (although somewhat less so in the last year or so). Unfortunately there's really not a lot you can do except wait until that other person realizes they're infected and cleans out their computer. The worm would have randomly selected one email address to use as a fake return address and it appears yours was it.

    You may be able to get some clues about where it's coming from if you check the properties of the emails you're getting and see what the IP address/server address is on the emails. Your address would be spoofed (faked) but the IP addresses in properties would not and could give you info on the ISP that the infected person uses. You can use this tool to find out info on IP addresses..

    The SPAM may not have come from you at all. The person actually doing the spamming could simply be inserting your email address in the From: field.

    Why would they do this? Because your SPAM filters are probably NOT setup to delete email from yourself.

    Receiving Spam from myself

    Thank you for the responses. For Fink:

    Here are the logs you said I should post. For some reason I can't just copy and paste the file. I had to open it to copy. Also, something in the process you outlined killed my internet connection. I couldn't get it going and my ISP Tech sSupport couldn't handle on the phone. They fiannly sent a rep who upgraded the DSL modem and made some changes to the Connections under Internet Options. I can surf and get mail but he could not get it to go into the new Modem so he could configure it, he had to do that but logging into the modem with hsi laptop.

    I had to open it to copy
    That's normal.

    Wait until one of our hijack experts has a look to advise further. You did have some remnants of infection although I don't believe they're related to the email issue (we'll let more experienced minds than mine decide that for sure). But sometimes malware injects itself into the networking components of the computer (breaking them for all intents and purposes) and then when removed they can cause further connectivity problems.

    we'll try and sort that all out for you.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Receiving SPAM from myself

    Great! I'll wait patiently.

    Is it done yet? Just kidding.

    I don't see anything nasty, unless....see below...

    Open HJT, and checkmark:
    - O2 - BHO: (no name) - {02478D38-C3F9-4efb-9B51-7695ECA05670} - (no file)
    - O3 - Toolbar: BitDefender Toolbar - {381FFDE8-2394-4f90-B10D-FC6124A40F8C} - "C:\Program Files\BitDefender\BitDefender 2009\Antispam32\IEToolbar.dll" (file missing)
    - O9 - Extra button: Renya Software World - {0713E8D2-850A-101B-AFC0-4210102A8DA7} - http://www.tradeposter.com (file missing)
    - O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {8DE0FCD4-5EB5-11D3-AD25-00002100131B} - http://www.tradeposter.com (file missing)

    Click "Fix checked" button.

    The above are just harmless dead entries, but...
    I'm curious about this one:
    O23 - Service: HP Chasis Button Service (HPBtnSrv) - Unknown owner - c:\hp\HPEZBTN\HPBtnSrv.exe
    At first, it looks like some HP service, but there is no any reference on the net. Also, "Chasis" is misspelled (Chassis).
    Upload HPBtnSrv.exe file to http://www.virustotal.com/ for security check.

    Questionable HP entry

    OK!! I did the security scan and the HPBtnSrv.exe file seems to be a valid Win32 and/or DOS executable.

    All the other suggested files entries have been removed.

    Thanks for the help guys! Again!!
