Has my email been compromised ??

Postby ryojin84 » Sat Apr 25, 2009 1:28 pm

I just found out about the gmail feature where you can look at your recent login history

Discovered this IP address that wasn't mine !

Rather worried right now since I use this email for my poker accounts etc

IP is 218.186.10.246

i did a google search and found some link to a weird Russian site.

Are there any legit explanations for this? Or was my router hacked into ?

I installed a AV software a couple of days ago and it deleted and quarantined a couple of trojans/viruses. Perhaps there are still undetected problems ?

Changed my Gmail password already. Shld I do the same for my MB and FTP accounts ?

K I just changed all my passwords

PS: FTP is quite risky i think. if someone gains access to your email he can just tell support to reset your password. And that's it!

PPS: Just found out that gmailers should activate the HTTPS function so that it's safer

There was once (around last year) when someone show how to exploit gmail which is opened in another tab (usually pple just leave gmail open in one of the tabs). Using javascript they managed to do a "cross site attack" and read off the emails off the gmail tab. I'm not sure if password could be stolen that way since u only use it when ur logging in. They have since fixed it (almost immediately).

how do you even check which IP add is used to log into the account?
