I just looked in my spam folder (yahoo mail), and found a spam message using my email name. Does this mean I've been hijacked...zombied?

No you are not hijacked , that is a common spam way.

It's meant to make you think it is legitimate and therefore a higher chance of you opening and reading the email.

Is this email using your Yahoo email address? I get those type of emails a lot i.e. supposedly from me, but google manages to filter them into spam.

I have had this happen to me using my hotmail as well.
