Try not to panic, from what I've heard of this sort of thing they just send out emails to people in your address book and try to sell something. All the ones I've seen have been very, very obvious as fakes to the recipients. My myspace account did it once, people started getting myspace comments from me about buying cell phones or something like that. It started by me getting a (fake) myspace comment from a friend of mine about cell phones. I didn't respond to it or actually even know about it until people started telling me they were getting these things from me. I changed my password and it took care of it. How in the heck it works I don't know, but they don't seem to do anything except send these annoying emails to your friends.
