Same thing happened to my sister's soccer-mom friend. Someone used her e-mail address and address book to send stuff to my sister and somehow it got to me. This friend got the virus and I was receiving e-mails that looked like copies of what she had actually sent in the past, except there was a nefarious *attachment*. It was either a Windows EXE that contained a virus or some other malware. I think it was also associated with a school district website, which are notorious for having viruses (the kiddies share colds and computer viruses alike).

Changing passwords and scanning for viruses is good, especially if you opened an attachment and/or a URL that was contained in the e-mail.
