Receiving hundreds of "delivery failure" notices

Message 1 of 7
(2,083 Views)

It started yesterday, but ever since then, I have received over 300  "delivery failure" notices to my verizon.net account.  It's obvious I have been hacked but now what can be done to fix it?  It is very annoying.  I have not opened any of them, I just delete.

Change your password and secret question/answer to something strong and complex, and tuna virus scan on every computer you check your email from.

i think tuna virus scan is a mispell or an auto correct that went haywire.   I decipher it as run a virus scan

 

run a = tuna    r and the t are close on the keyboard etc.    

 

 

Try Trend Micro's Free online tools and double check all of your stuff.  I recommend doing housecall and also the rootkitbuster at the bottom of the page. 

 

verizon also offers a free scan as well (3 tries) at www.verizon.com/freetools

Hubrisnxs guessed it in 1! I was rushing and didn't proofread. My bad.
