how can I change my email to my current one for my account?

There appears (as expected) to be an option to do so, under >[YourUsername] >Edit Profile.

Thanks, I didn't notice that, but now the problem is that is says my current email is already in use. I can't update my email to my current one.

You should be able to log into Armor Games normally.  Then you can change your e-mail/password.  If anybody is still having issues, E-mail me at Ferret@ArmorGames.com.

Do you think it was the JTR program?

I really do not know what happened to Armor Games in this security breach. Altough, when i was going to log in, it comes saying to me reset my password because of the security breach. Well, i reseted it, but i REALLY do not know what was that "security breach".

I just received a very disturbing message:

Someone recently tried to use an application to sign in to your Google Account -

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:

If you do not recognize this sign-in attempt, someone else might be trying to access your account. You should sign in to your account and reset your password immediately.

Could you post those details? (Sans any personal ones.)

I don't think it has to be related. Nor am I sure if it is that disturbing; people (/bots) can of course try and access your account, that's what the password is for. Moreover, Google's safeguards kicked in.

But I don't know about e.g. this application angle. Maybe those details will reveal it.

To reset it would in any case seem like sound advice.

NOTE, HOWEVER: If some link to follow to reset the password is provided, it could of course be a phishing attempt instead, the message not originating with Google at all, no matter if it does look that way. I've no idea really if this is the way they communicate with customers.

If you want to reset your password, I'd suggest visiting the appropriate pages yourself. Not following any hyperlink to get there.

And again: I think you receiving this now most likely would be pure coincidence, not at all related to this occurrence at ArmorGames.

Thanks for trying to help me MacII.
I can not reveal the details.It would be stupid, right?

All I can say is that the attack was from Mexico.

It was a hacker attack. I know how it came and why.
It has to do with facebook,I made a mistake.
Comment that I placed on the AG facebook page has revealed my Identity.
Someone just made the connection.

I've taken necessary cautionary measures.
