    Suspicious account activity


    I rarely use my ages old hotmail account, but I do have it set up for POP access from my PC - Windows 10, with Outlook 2010, so it's is poked at least once a day.


    I received a notice of suspicious activity and when I checked the log, I found:


    Device/platform Windows

    Browser/app Firefox

    IP address 185.240.246.124

    Account alias *** Email address is removed for privacy ***

    Session activity Unusual activity detected


    and


    Protocol: Exchange ActiveSync

    IP: 41.217.72.75

    Account alias: *** Email address is removed for privacy ***

    Time: 2 hours ago

    Approximate location: Nigeria

    Type: Unusual activity detected


    The account had a long, unique, unguessable password which I have since changed not used elsewhere and I use a password manager, KeePass.


    How is this possible?
    What is the "unusual activity" captured with Firefox?
    How was Exchange ActiveSync used without my password?

    I am very cautious and conscientious about my passwords and am comletely puxxled.

    Thanks,

    Suspicious Activity - Yahoo Mail


    I had a notice from Comcast once that they noticed suspicious activity on my email account. I checked my online account and couldn't find anything wrong. I changed my pass word and haven't received any notices since.

    Remove account

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    Suspicious Activity - Yahoo Mail


    Yes, it was email notification from Yahoo. I did not elect to have the phone contact verification. There was nothing to click on in the original message. It stated "We have noted suspicious activity in your account." It then listed safety procedures and preventative measures.

    Since, I have corresponded by email with Yahoo Customer Care 2/3 times about this issue. Nothing seems questionable.

    I have used Yahoo for 25 years, first issue, but then I am not as smart as David (post above).
