Can an e-mail malware, steal your mail-contact list?


Recommended Posts



I wanna know, if it is possible for a Malware to steal all the contact list on your e-mail (outlook for example), to spam them too.

It is a doubt that I have, because sometime, the users of the company are victims of some suspicious links on e.mails, and apparently the PC is not inffected, but I think that the malware did something else (like steal the contact list).

Certainly. Once the malware has appropriate access, it can do what it was created to do.

If you do not use our products yet, I suggest you run a scan using our ESET Online Scanner, to get an initial overview of the state of your machine: https://www.eset.com/int/home/products/online-scanner/
