A similar thing happened to a coworker a while ago and to a relative 
recently. I will call it loop-back malware. The coworker had his 
gmail account open one on browser tap/page while browsing elsewhere. 
The loop-back malware came in and found his gmail account and mailing 
list etc. Then masquerading as the user, the malicious malware mailed 
mischievous maybe malignant or malevolent missives to the multitude.
