    My yahoo email has been compromised and is sending emails out under my address. How do I take care of this? I was told its a worm in the system and could crash at anytime. I'm using an iPhone 5. Can anyone help?

    In the past, I've had my yahoo mail hacked and some party gained my password, which allowed this party to send emails using my contact list. The way I resolved it was to change my password on my Yahoo account. Hope this helps.

    bjharada is spot on. The issue isn't your phone. It is the fact that your account password is no longer secure.
