Re: Beware Hotel WiFi
I had the same gmail problem, about a week or two ago... but from the US and google warned of suspicious activity... turns out something sent junk URL to some contacts from my gmail. However, I figure this was my fault since I foolishly logged into my gmail from a somewhat 'public' machine. Since this was just my personal gmail account, this was very low-risk for me, I use a different password for my more sensitive accounts anyways, but have moved to a password manager, (lastpass).
I figure a bot/rootkit or some type of logger picked up my password, my gmail password was somewhat strong... was 10 chars total, with four numbers, and a mix of upper and lower case letters, so i'm confident it was not brute force.
