It was my AT&T email (sub email account) out of my master AT&T email. It is the one accessible through Yahoo.com when I am away from my computer. I access it on my IMac using Entourage. The sub email account was suspended by AT&T when AT&T ascertained that it had been hacked. Solicitations (spam) were going out from my sub account (which again is the one I use all the time) to people in my contact list. The first clue I had was returned emails (Mailer Daemon or similar name) that were undeliverable. Then, friends started sending me notices that I had been hacked. One such email went out to a major contact file, I learned. My husband has a subaccount under the same master email account, and his was not hacked or compromised. Of course, AT&T has sent me a dire warning to take multiple actions to warn recipients of my hacked email messages to run virus scans, etc etc, among other things, like changing my email address. I have changed my password through AT&T.
I run the Software Updater whenever it appears as a prompt but for sure it is now up-to-date, including Java. So, again, I don't know how much I need to do at this point.
