    Help...Mass Emails being sent from my incredible

    My incredible in apparently sending mass emails to people in my address book. Is this a virus?


    People from my address book are sending copies of email, allegedly from me, that say,
    "I've been using USA TODAY and I think you might like it. Check it out from your Android phone:
    http://market.android.com/search?q=pname:com.usatoday.android.news"

    It then attaches my Droid Incredible Signature so it probably did originate from my phone. It has happened to multiple apps on my phone....not just USA today...looks like every app I have downloaded.


    Any suggestions?

    Are the e-mails being sent from gmail or another account?

    Laura -

    They put a software share app on the Inc. I don't have it, but do you remember the name of it? Basically it will send a link to people saying you are using this app and recommend it. It sounds like it could be this acting up for some reason.

    Ok, I believe it may be called Appshare. flf...see if you have anything like this installed. It may not be this exact name, but look through all of your apps.

    Hmm, you learn something new every day! There IS an app called App Sharing (never noticed it before). flf, check your settings there. Are you running stock Android?

    Can you determine if they are being sent from your DI or from a PC that has malware?

    I remember seeing it and looking into it quickly. When I went to test it, the exact same link the fif posted was setup to send.

    That is what I am thinking Pam. I did the steps up to the point of sending and it was identical. The OP may have accidentally set it up that one time.
