Picasa hijacked

A friend has told me she sent a photo of a new grandchild to others via Picasa. When the email was opened by the recipients they also found some pornographic photos attached in addition to the grandchild's. Not a nice experience!
Has anyone else experienced this and, if so, can it be prevented in future?
Thanks

Just because I would not have sent a picture that way, I would have used an attachment to a normal e-mail...... leaves me uncertain as to where the hacker gained access.

I suggest Picasa should be told of the occurence, and the sender might do worse than have a serious trawl with every spy, virus and malware detector they have through their whole computer.
