Someone’s sending email that looks like it’s from me to my contacts, what can I do?

As I’ve discussed before, changing your password is important, but it’s not nearly enough. You also need to change any and all security related information associated with the stolen account. Why? Because the thief has access to all that too, and he can use that information to steal your account again. And again. And again.
