My Gmail is compromised

hi,

Yesterday I received a mail from one of my orkut friends. A link to see some photos. I am usually careful about clicking on links in meial but this mail came from my friend (I thought so) and it was pointing at orkut. I clicked on it. It redirected me to orkut page. I logged into orkut and saw my homepage. There was nothing special. I immediately realised my mistake and deleted that email.
NOt unitil today did I realise the consequences of my action. Today I was not able to log into my gmail. I was shocked. Later in the day I learnt a mail was sent from my mailID - the same orkut mail to see some photos. I stopped that person from logging in.

This is a disaster for me.

I have reported this to Google, but they say it will take 24 hrs.

I am posting this just to warn all of you.

Yeah...I missed it. I always follow tech news, but this time because of work I was not able to follow this news fully.... anyways even if I was not aware of this news I should not have clicked on that link...My Mistake.
