What is webmaster_755527@wmt.secureserver.net in Google Webmaster tools

While checking Google Webmaster Tools account for my company websites, I found an additional verified user with email address "webmaster_755527@wmt.secureserver.net". This unknown email address was also a Google webmaster verified user for my company website without my knowledge. I unverified this user suddenly and started checking whether it was legitimate one or not. There might be a chance of misusing username and password provided to other company employees.

Another concern is how safe Google Webmaster account if an unknown email address could register without the permission from account admin.

I started checking for this issue in major forums and saw the complaints by several users with same p…
