    Yesterday I noticed my facebook was hacked. Then today my phone tried sending yahoo messages that I didnt create. My screensaver was changed to a message from my yahoo inbox which was a coupon to a furniture store. I changed my wallpaper again and later I noticed it was changed to solid black. Does anyone know if this could be caused by hacking? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    Probably malware you installed. Try using Lookout or something similar to search your installed apps for the culprit.

    Lookout would be your best option, install it from Android Market and it should run an initial scan, if it finds any problems/malware on your phone it will notify you and suggest the next action you should take. Hope this helps.

    You will also want to change your yahoo account password.

    Thanks for the replies. I have lookout and it didn't discover anything. I did a reset on the phone and thought I would be good. Then this morning I woke up and my browser was open. I looked in the history and it had been surfing the internet. I also had three new downloaded items. It wasn't on advertising sites or anything, just normal sites like wikipedia and a lot on league of legends. One of the downloaded items was a picture of a character on league of legends. Im not sure what to do. Could the problem be on my sd card? I deleted everything off the card except pictures music and my contacts.

    Whoa, that'd be kinda freaky to wake up n look at ur phone n see that it was browsing the internet on its own, That's some crazy ish. What if u would've been near ur data limit n that put u way over?? Those dam jackasses developing malware, useless folks I swear. If only they put that knowledge to use for the betterment of everyone, boy that'd be somethin.
    Kinda surprising that Lookout didn't find anything...must be somethin it doesn't know about, some new style. I'm sure you've thought about all this, but when exactly did u notice anything suspicious, and was it soon after installing any new apps or anything?? Now I'm curious, and of course would like to help any way that I can. Stuff like that is What will ruin the freedom that our tech is able to freely enjoy at the moment.
