Account Compromised

My email account was compromised 12 hours ago. I subsequently had to contact google to reactivate the account and reset the password.

It appears that some kind of “spam” was sent to a dozen or so contacts in my address book.

    So?

    • It’s my primary account. It appears to be the victim of some kind of malicious script. I take this very seriously as a compromised account presents risks to myself and others. There does not appear to be any additional precautions that I can take to eliminate this risk.
