My gmail account got hacked

Very annoying, it seems someone stole my password and sent emails to all my contacts without leaving a trace in the sent folder but in the inbox, since some emails bounced back, luckily. The most useful step was to log out from all accounts as I was seeing live how this guy was still sending emails. This official Google page explains how to log out from all open sessions:

I guess it will be useless to post here the offending IP address, but nevertheless it makes me feel better.

Very doubtlessly a guy from Nigeria stole my password... and these guys are professionals as many neighboring IPs are already reported as scammers:

This also happened recently to a friend of mine. I guess nowhere we are safe...

To complete the info the email that was being sent from my account follows:
