I got a message alert in Gmail two days ago saying that my email had been accessed from China. I wonder if that was related.



It says that the hijacking occurred in April. Someone in China accessing your email just two days ago is probably just coincidence. However, it would still be a good idea to look into it (and change your password)


Thanks. I did change the password. A search indicates that something similar has been reported by others about every month this year. http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8...


This article is about something that happened 7 months ago.


Looked at your message and logged into my email account.

Got a message that it was accessed by United States (webcontrolcenter.com:67.199.10.9) 21 hours ago.

WTF is happening

Advise on what to do now is welcomed here


Why the hell am I being down voted? I think this is a serious issue here. And I am not alone. There are many other people who had something like this.

Please leave a comment as the down votes are cryptic to me.


I didn't downvote you, but I don't come to HN to give tech support either. Change your password to a stronger one, don't use it on other sites, don't type it on suspect computers, etc; you should know this.

Sorry for the harsh words.


Are you in Cocos Islands? Maybe the downvoters assumed you're in the US?


I am in India. And was not looking for tech support but you take on what to make of this. I never ask for tech support from a community which is not meant for this.


Cool. Keep us posted.
