    So I rooted my phone two days ago and yesterday installed a custom rom.

    Today I logged into my gmail account on my PC which i never do as I have it all set to fwd to a primary email account.

    When I did it indicated my account had been accessed by an IP that didnt match the ones i usually use and showed as being from south korea. I imeddiately changed my password on the account but am now worried.

    Has anyone else ever seen this?

    Never heard of that happening from rooting but did you download any apps recently?

    I saw this about a month ago. An IP from Vietnam accessed my account. The next day there were charges against my credit card associated with my Google account. I would recommend that you keep a close eye on that.

    But if there were charges associated with your CC and google account wouldnt you get an email for the billing?

    For 1 charge yes...there were several others that I didn't see until I checked my bank account. I then checked Google Check Out and saw the charges there. Luckily I was able to contact the vendors and stop all but 1 charge before they cleared. Not saying that this is happening to you, just giving you a heads up. I also turned on Google's 2 step verification since then. It's a PITA, but if it keeps this from happening again, its worth it.

    Be careful with this. What rooting method/custom rom did you use/install?

    I used the three step rooting method from the XDA forum. I am running the lightning rom by Chingy.

    I was stuck on step 3 of the root and did allow someone to connect to my pc and do step 7 of the manual root process through ADB. I watched the entire time though and from what I could see he only did what was in the step 7 process.

    Hmmm was the Guy trust worthy? Did you notify the rom maker that there might be something his rom? I think there was something in the market that can search your phone for possible apps that might steal data ever since that whole thing about malware in the market. I forgot what it was called though :-( lookout mobile maybe? I know xuedoxus was also making an app like this. Good thing you checked. It's also possible it could have been the ruu images used when rooting. Hopefully changing your password fixed it.

    Yeah im comfortable he was trust worthy and like I said I watched him enter in the information right from the guide. I did download AVG and run a scan with it and it only threw up warning for Superuser and wifi tether.


    I have changed my password and set up 2 step verification.
