techrep email hijacked

By ZalTech ·
I have a domain so I when registering I always use the site as the "name"@XXX.XXX so I can tell who sold my email for bulk mailing.

Recently I have recently received literally a hundred emails to my Tech Republic email (techrep@XXX.XXX) regarding "password change". They all have the w32/sober.j@MM viral attachment, and the body is like so (from the most recent):

Date: 6 Dec 23:54 (PST)
To: TechRep@XXX.XXX
Subject: Re: Registration confirmation <KEY:7875

Your password was changed successfully!

++++++ User-Service:
++++++ MailTo:

*-*-* Mail_Scanner: No Virus
*-*-* XXX- Anti_Virus Service
*-*-* http://www.XXX.XXX

I do not get them to other emails I use only my techrep email. Has anyone else been experiencing this?
