I don't know how they did it. But somehow a spam site called http://contactofindia.com managed to send a spam mail from my email ID to most of my contact list. I am annoyed but do not know what to do about it. If I add this email to the phishing list, then I end up adding myself in the list since I am the unfortunate sender. I have changed my account settings and hope that the same doesn't happen again.

(Click on the screenshot for the bigger picture and notice how the sender ID is mine)

This may be because you have used used your email id n pass to any unreliable website...
Just a guess..
The best way is check your gmail logs at the bottom of page which will help you to keep track, if someone else is using your email ID.

Don't forget to update your AV timely.
