Yahoo Email Compromised

It looks like my yahoo email address is continuing to send out spam. I think they are just spoofing my email address, but that doesn't explain how they got the emails of everybody on my contact list. When I first realized it was happening deleted my contact list and changed my password, but another round of spam went out this morning. Yahoo is no help in the manner and a quick Google search shows that people have been having this problem for years. There is nothing I can do except tell you not to click on any link from any email from my yahoo address.

I will be spending this weekend changing everything over to a gmail address. If you know anybody that knows me, pass this information on to them. I wasn't smart enough to actually save my contact list before deleting it, so I can't send out email to everybody myself.
