I've been receiving a number of spam mails from my friends via yahoo account.

Seems that quite a number of them kena.

It seems that its the server kena hack rather than mailbox password compromised, as one of my friend used complex password containing "#*" also kena while another used all numbers safe and sound.

Anyone kena?

Most likely one of the computers you use to access your e-mails has a virus, or you went to bad sites.

Your password has gone to some bad hands now. You immediately change your password with long alpha-numeric-special characters combo!

It's an email worm, not an account that's been hacked (or more precisely, cracked). Worms can also spoof other email addresses that they harvest from an infected computer. So, for instance, if your friend's computer is infected, and he's stored your email, as well as a third friend's email on his system, the worm can send a spam mail to the third friend with *your* address in the "From" field. So you end up getting accused for it, even if your system is pristine. Devious little buggers they are.

And echoing the sentiments of some others, Yahoo! Mail is total crap. Gmail or nothing.
