LIVE.CO.UK Contact list hacked and spammed - Help please!

#1
I have a live.co.uk email account which has been hacked and used to spam (some of) my Contacts list on 3 separate occassions in the last couple of weeks.

Has anyone else experienced this and what can be done about it?

Ta.

I'd be surprised if it's actually been hacked. It's more than likely that either:

- Your computer has been compromised
- Your password has been compromised

First, ensure you're not using a compromised PC (Malwarebytes is a good starting point - Malwarebytes) and then change your password.

If you have issues beyond that, it's an issue with live.co.uk.
