reseting my password through "i forgot my password" alternative email reset worked.

it was only my yahoo mail that was the problem so no keylogger

hope you don't use same password for all your logins or use any names places etc etc. Use https when you sign in nothing else and make your passwords 8 to 9 random characters containing upper case lower case and symbols.

but me changing the password through email stopped them ?

if it was a keylogger or similar they would have access to my entire pc not just yahoo mail

google chrome
dont no what last pass is.

yes https

had a little tester i changed my password again to see if the CA/US would logon again and it did so i think that maybe its the yahoo password reset server or something.

spoke to yahoo and they were useless.

i think that the other 2 hacks that i had 2 days ago were the actual spammers not the CA/US one.

all is ok now
