By now most of  you have seen or heard the "trick" where you get an innocuous email asking if you can do a favor or if you shop on Amazon.  When you respond, you receive a second email with a request that you get them a gift card and email it to them.  The new trick is that the bad guys actually hack into the "senders" email account and compromise it by taking advantage of some new AOL features.
