We recently noticed some suspicious activity on your GitHub account. Out of an abundance of caution, we made the decision to force a password reset for the account associated with this email address.
This kind of unauthorized access often occurs as a result of reusing the same sign in credentials on multiple online services. An attacker is then able to obtain lists of email addresses and passwords from other online services that have been compromised in the past, and try them on GitHub. To note, GitHub has not been hacked or compromised.
In this particular case, GitHub discovered suspicious starring and watching of repositories during the course of routine anti-spam work. Subsequent investigation revealed suspicious login activity on your account.
Follow the link below to request a password reset token.
To protect your account from unauthorized access, please choose a strong and unique password for your account. We have a help article with some recommendations here:
We also strongly recommend taking the additional step to secure your account with two-factor authentication. The following guide provides step-by-step instructions:
