    Change your password immediately if you haven't, that'll put an abrupt end to abuses, at least for this round of hijacking : }

    Paul, Yes change your password. You also should click on the bottom right of the gmail page on "Details." (The item is: Last account activity: 52 minutes ago Details) When this happened to me, I clicked on Details and saw that someone was online in India. I changed the password and kicked them off and now monitor that details button.

    Same happened to me, and someone from China hacked my gmail account. A simple password change solve the problem.

    If you rely on Gmail, you should strongly consider using two-step authorization to make your account more secure:
