Hey, so i just recieved a message on my phone saying that somebody else may have accesed to my microsoft account, i logged in to check what was going on, on recent activity somebody with an IP from russia or china tried logging in using an application named "POP3", i already changed my password on my account. Should i worry about it? Is there something else i should do? Thanks
 
Change your password, and you'll be fine. Enable 2 step verification for your phone, to prevent it from happening in the future. No reason to worry. If someone stole money from you, your bank would tell you. Unless the security isn't very high. Now, be vary of email messaged. Even if you open a .PDF, your PC can be completely taken over, so don't click on any links at all that you don't recognize.

Someone likely got your email password and was trying to get into your email, most likely to get into your online banking account. I would check those asap make sure there are no wire transfers or anything like that.
