I received the following message from Gmail indicating someone attempted to hijack my account. I confirmed this by looking at the details history on my account and the IP address listed below showed up. What could this be? I didn't know many attacks were originating from Mexico.
Someone recently used your password to try to sign in to your Google Account *@gmail.com. This person was using an application such as an email client or mobile device.
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: Thursday, February 6, 2014 12:52:06 AM UTC IP Address: 18.104.22.168 Location: León, Guanajuato, Mexico
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.
If this was you, and you are having trouble accessing your account, complete the troubleshooting steps listed at http://support.google.com/mail?p=client_login
Sincerely, The Google Accounts team
