This seemed to have happened to a lot of yahoo accounts over the weekend.  What's interesting is I haven't used my yahoo account since 2005 and after a similar thing a few weeks ago, I couldn't figure out how it got the addresses it sent to - I do not have any saved addresses or Contacts on file with yahoo.  So I changed my password weeks ago to something crazy - and never logged in again.  Then yesterday I got a similar email from my yahoo account, and it sent to another 10 email addresses I had once mailed in 2005.  But still no address book, no saved contacts in yahoo.  So whatever worm they have on their yahoo servers seemed to have screen scraped the addresses and sent the spam. 

So as my own test, I deleted every email I sent and received since 2005, changed the password again.  Everything else in my Inbox is SPAM.  yahoo mail really needs to get with it.  It has become the new aol.
