Got a mail from yourself?

Yesterday one of my friend came to me shouting “I got mail from myself, My account is hacked”.

Happened same thing with you ? If yes don’t get scared that may be a faked email.

How it works ?

its just simple web mailer script.PHP or ASP or any other.In that you can define From  and To email adresses.

So if you have got such mail means someone entered your mail id in both the field listed above.

You can check headers of the mail and google the thing.So you may get link to the mailer.

If you not sure then for safety change your password.
