Default Suspected malware. Email automated spam.

Hey everyone.

I have a Blackberry Curve 9300 with an OS version 6.0.0.461, Plat 6.6.0.137.

My email (gmail) has been sending emails to most members on my address book. I suspect it is malware hosted on my phone (My only means of internet access; no computer) using my saved credentials for access to my email account.

For example: At least 5 people are selected randomly from my address book at a time and are sent emails regarding the usual spam (xxxxxx, medicine, etc.).

I was wondering what the best approach to stop this from happening, without deleting my main email account. Are there any malware scanners/removers, security updates, etc? My last update was in April, and Blackberry insists that no more updates are available.

tl;dr My phone sends unauthorized emails, and I would like to slavage my contact list and email account. How can I stop this spam delivery from happening, and how can I keep my phone secure?

Thanks, all!
