A few days ago, I noticed that I have been getting return messages in my GMail account. I opened one of it, and noticed that I was actually sending out spams out to people in my contact list.
Thinking that it might be spoofed, I checked my outgoing folders, and to my surprised I found that I did sent out those emails. From my history of so many ancient years of using the computer, I have never got infected by a virus, or a malware before. I have yet to had any of my accounts hacked. Disbelieved, I surf around wanting for an answer.
That pretty much explains it. I recalled that a couple of days ago, I was surfing and downloading torrent files of gay porns. There were couple of windows that popped up, but most of them are blocked by my popup blocker that was build-in Opera browser.
The porn that was downloaded was good actually, but that is another story. One lesson to learn is that, even with big corporation as big as Google, insecurity can sometimes happen. No matter how well a code is being coded, a simple line could have cause an issue as big as this.
I guess from now onwards, before I start surfing for porns, I better make sure I do not log in to GMail, or even online banking. Just in case.
