    gmail access

    Hello, today I received an email that say my google account was accessed by a non usual computer, in fact the ip is from another country and happened tonight... I read that lot of google users received the email and was a problem with plaxo, can I be secure? This happened to you too?

    Code:
    Someone recently tried to sign in to your Google Account, myaccount@gmail.com. We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account. Please review the details of the sign-in attempt:
    
    May 9, 2012 2:59am GMT 
    IP Address: 
    Location: Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan 
    If you do not recognize this sign-in attempt, someone else might be trying to access your account. You should sign in to your account and reset your password immediately. Find out how at http://support.google.com/accounts?p=reset_pw
    
    Sincerely,
    The Google Accounts Team

    Well, I wouldn't click on any links in that particular e-mail, but I would probably go to gmail.com and change my password. E-mails like that could be phishing attempts, too, so be wary.
    What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    I changed my password... they want to say that they blocked the trying to access my account so the attacker didn't entered?
