Google takes charge of Gmail spam, no account has been compromised

PSA: New Gmail spam makes it appear that your account is sending email to itself [Update]

Somehow, the users were able to trick both Google's spam filter and mess with Gmail enough that Gmail added their photos to the sent folder, being unable to tell that it itself did not send the email.

Fearing that the incident may have been a security breach, some users quickly changed their passwords but to no avail. A Google spokesperson admitted that the issue relates to a "spam campaign impacting a small subset of Gmail users" in a statement given to Mashable.

Many Gmail users reported that their inboxes have received a lot of ads that were ostensibly sent by themselves!

Spurs Avoid Sweep by Defeating Warriors 103-90 in Game 4
They out-rebounded the Spurs 50-23 through the first three quarters, including a 19-7 advantage on offensive rebounds. On the verge of elimination, the Spurs stepped up and hit the shots they needed to hit to keep their season alive.

Numerous account holders woke up Sunday morning to discover a raft of spam emails sitting in their sent folders, and that even after changing their passwords the emails kept going out.

The moment spam to originate from your account, it is very likely that it has been compromised and someone has taken control of it. Many of these people have two-factor authentication on their accounts, but that didn't stop the spammers, it seems! Since the messages are coming from the same account, they appear in the sent folder of Gmail. They didn't send these emails and have no idea how they got there. "I shifted my password right following the initial one, however, then it just happened again two times", an individual composed on "Google Help Forum". It forged email headers so that it appeared the account was sending emails to themselves and to others. After they took a second look at the messages, they noticed they were even weirder than that.

Responding to this, Telus informed that those messages were not sent from their servers and the ongoing issue has been solved now by vendors.
