Suspicious sign in to google
Posted on 2013-01-10
I have a rather pedestian question, and a simple plea. I just got two emails from google saying, "Someone recently tried to use an application to sign in to your Google Account ... We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account ... You should sign in to your account and reset your password immediately."
I will spare you the three paragraph explanation, but the bottom line is that I don't *want* to reset my password unless absolutely necessary. Yet the email from google makes no mention of whether the hacker HAD the correct password. My password is completely random and cannot be guessed. If a hacker has it, s/he got it some other way, and with that kind of security leak my banking passwords aren't safe either.
Do you guys know anything about this? Would google even be writing me if the password were incorrect?
