Suddenly and totally by itself, a new draft was born into my Gmail’s drafts.

It is addressed to:

fub@gmail.com, h6j765@gmail.com, 9@gmail.com, o6@gmail.com

The subject is:

FS 54 TB f5un'epocau6gd5 Pulkovo

The body text is:

It is a little disquieting...

Some ideas?

    Change your Gmail password now. Don't worry about making it a strong one at first, just change it right this moment; you can always change it again immediately afterwards to a strong one. Also, invalidate any existing sessions if you can (I think there's a way to do that, but don't use Gmail myself so don't know for sure). – user Jun 2 '15 at 9:59

    Check your web browser extensions. – kenorb Jun 2 '15 at 10:08

    scroll all the way down and click on "open in 2 other locations - details" . Also 2FA linked to your phone is a VERY good idea. – Journeyman Geek Jun 2 '15 at 10:10

    Change your password, then goto myaccount.google.com/security?pli=1#activity, click review devices, click on any unrecognised devices, then click remove. – DavidPostill Jun 2 '15 at 10:11

    While you're there you'll also want to look at what apps have access to your account. – ale Jun 4 '15 at 22:06

As soon as you see a suspicious activity in your mailbox change the password of your account, then make sure to follow the steps in the security checklist to help protect your account from the bad guys.
