Thanks Lee,
The last time when I used my Google account it actually asked me for two step verification, so hopefully it should be OK.

Sincerely,

If you log in to your email on public computers and you have a gmail account, I would strongly recommend you use "2-step verification". Look here: http://support.google.com/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=180744


You can use it with a smartphone, text messages, or you can print out 1-time passwords and stick them in your wallet.

Hi to all,

do believe it was not send from my email frantisekapfelbeck at gmail.com so I do not think that any of the accounts was actually hacked.

working from some public libraries recently(no cafes) and it is hard to 
understand which option is "do not save my password" in Korean. Of 
course tracking and exposing the person who is trying to cause problems 
would be handy.
