My AOL email has been hacked - how do I stop this?

I believe my AOL email has been hacked (I have free webmail) as I keep receiving a ton of non-delivery notifications every day for messages which I haven't sent. And my sent folder, on a daily basis, is filled with sent emails to addresses I have no knowledge of and never sent. A lot of these emails also have what I can only describe as chinese text or something similar. Can anyone help? Thank you.

You're infected with malware. Run your antivirus program.

Love one another.

I've also just had this problem.  Have you had any luck?

It won't let me change my password which is also very frustrating.
