    Ive just had someone who has managed to list items on my ebay account, how is that possible? I havent been to any phishing sites or used any unsecure sites etc, so how have they managed this?

    Wow - that's scary!...

    I was just gonna suggest that, if you had emailed someone, it could be the recipient's PC that's the problem. We had a customer who was receiving emails from a company that contained subjects to do with some sensitive data she'd been emailing a contact about...turned out that the contacts outlook was subject to malware and was generating all sorts of spam mail to contacts in her outlook address book and somehow using subject headers that she had previously used!

    Mmmm, i wonder if its something to do with my outlook. Ive got an AOL account but i use IMAP to access it (so i dont have to use their bloody software), so i wonder if they could have used that somehow. I asked ebay how they done it and they couldnt answer me, they just went through the obvious like phishing sites etc.

    I've had problems like that. Someone had changed the password and username on an ebay account that had my hotmail addy. I hadn't even logged into that ebay account in tha last 2 years so was a bit surprised. I've never clicked any links i had in emails from ebay on that account either so don't think any phising sites have been accessed.

    I just reported it to ebay as Spam etc and now the accounts been suspeneded and i dont get anymore emails from it.

    The account i do use for ebay has never had any problems like that. I only get the right mails regarding auction bids etc nothing to do with changes to the account.

    Still, in this day and age ya never know!

    I refuse to help you out until you get rid of that AOL account. :noway :noob

    In all seriousness, if you use that username and password elsewhere, now would be a good time to change them on those sites. And if you haven't scanned for keyloggers and rootkits using a utility specially designed for scanning for rootkits, now would be a good time to do it.

    ...and get rid of that AOL crap, willya? You're financially supporting the devil!!! :ohmy

    Whats wrong with AOL? I never have connection problems, and thats all i use them for, i dont use any of their software.

    I dont use any identical passwords, so im covered there.

    Can you recommend any scanners?

    Lots of AOL haters here.

    Not entirely sure why though, I don’t use the AOL software (just put the details in the router) and my internet connection has never gone down (when I’ve been using it anyway!)

    As said, best to change any passwords you use on the tinternet. :biggrin

    Might be an eBay issue and not an issue with your PC.

    Has your eBay password been reset?
