Please don't touch my jerky

I am flying on frontier airlines to Indianapolis in July. I won't be checking anything, just bringing a carry on bag. I was hoping to bring some vacuum sealed packs of jerky from this store with me on my carry on bag. Is this a problem? Are they going to make me open up my packages of jerky in security? I am going for a long visit and need my stuff to stay fresh so I don't want to unseal it. So basically, can I bring sealed packages of beef jerky/nuts/berries on an airplane?

Is my friend's Hotmail account hacked or not?

I got a spam email from my friend who has a hotmail account. It looks like the spam has been sent to everyone in his hotmail distribution list. My question is, how did the hackers do this? Did they need his password in order to get access to his distribution list? As far as I know he is still able to use his account which puzzles me. Wouldn't a hacker (if he had the password) quickly change the password so that they could keep sending spam out on that account?
