    Someone recently tried to use an application to sign in to your Google Account, *hidden*. We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account. Please review the details of the sign-in attempt:

    Yea, i've had this before. I'd change your password..

    My main youtube account had it recently, I changed my password fast. Just to ensure I don't get hacked.

    The program isnĀ“t called "bruteforce"... But it was a program which executes bruteforce attacks. ;)
