I have a "real-world" friend who was using a gMail address for their MtGox account.
When they logged into gMail today they got this:

We've detected suspicious activity on your Google Account. Please create a new password to continue using your account.

So the Hacker World is possibly trying to take over your email at the right time to respond to this from MtGox:
...your password has been disabled as a security measure (and you will need to reset it to login again on Mt.Gox).

Secure your email account now! == I used to use somewhat simple password for email, but not any more, make sure you have control of yours.

OK thanks.
Now all other types of email users should make sure they have a strong password.
