    Maybe this sounds like a stupid question, but it was not mentioned whether or not you had to be signed in within the same browser session? Would it be possible for it to happen, even if having Gmail open in a different session (same or different web browser)?

    Scary stuff indeed:ouch: .

    But I do always log-out when ever I am done with my email account or any other account for that matter to be sure something like this won't happen.
