For my imac running snow leopard. My Yahoo mail was compromised. I had that cleaned up by a technician before any real damage happened.

The question I have is how can I do it myself when it comes to checking to see if someone is trying to get in and redirect my mail (comcast is my connection provider and ATT handles my yahoo mail)?

Also, what is the best virus protection software? I checked out Sophos. It looks good, but I wonder how do they make money when their software and updates are free.

Please give this a read. There is a LOT of dead wrong misinformation here in only two posts.
