Very strange; I just checked my security history and see that there have been 5 unsuccessful login attempts from China/Venezuela to my account (last 14 hours). Everything before that is pretty clean and without fake logins.

Does anyone have more information on this?




I too have the following, which cannot be attributed to me since I was asleep.

Maybe they've just enabled reporting for failed logins?

If nothing else it would encourage people to care more about their security.


Same here, 5 failed login attempts from Venezuela
