    I downloaded some legible phone applications today on my Htc incredible (google gestures, food finder, SKYDECK)

    I later found that I was getting too many mailer daemons on my acct, the phone send emails to all my gmail accounts contacts (colleagues and other officials) something like below

    "Dear friend,
    How are you doing now?
    I bought a notebook from the website last week www DOT krrshop DOT com
    ......"


    Now I am sure the phone wad hacked and not gmail as all the screens got formatted on my phone(sorry for wronf usage reboot below)

    I checked all the apps and I think it is the app SKYDECK, I am not a techie but the app shows the permission to read and write/edit/delete contact data, also when you install it it will ask you the option to send message to contacts for whom the information is not there(I chose no).

    From some mailer daemons I found hat message was send using information below

    MIME-Version: 1.0

    It would be great if someone one confirm me where this email might have originated it from

    Thanks

    yes but it also rebooted the whole phone, so it is unlikely that is gmail acct hack or a virus on my computer!

    Change your password & security questions. My gmail was "compromised" once but Google contacted me bc the IP address was in Algeria....

    Could have been coincidence.

    The email's you are sending are from a known gmail hack.

    Unless the hacker actually PHYSICALLY grabbed your phone and changed your phone's settings, it is very unlikely the hack occurred on the phone.

    thanks for replies, is there a way I can trace it back whether it was send from my phone or from my gmail acct ?

    I did change the password as well to prevent further hack !

    You can usually pull an IP from the Advanced Email headers, to show you where it came from. But not always correct...

    It might be a wise idea to remove the link to the website so that it's not accidentally clicked on by someone.

    there are reports of the same hack on hotmail as well.

    skydeck (now mr. number) seems to be legit and I do not see any reports of any complaints about the company or the app (on any platform).
