I found an unknown and unwanted contact in my address recently.  It was added 12/17/12.  It included name, phone # and email address.  Should I be concerned?  How could this contact be entered when I did not enter it.  The only other contact is myself and was entered in 2009.  I do not use my address book and found this entry accidently.  I would appreciate any thoughts on this.  It seems to me, someone must have hacked that possible?
