Gmail security message

When i log on this morning, i was forced to change gmail password, I checked security tab and it said "your password was exposed in a non google data breach ".

Is this related to solarwinds hack?

I see you're aware of the Solar Winds exploit as of late.

Who knows, but good thing google gave you a heads up.

Great reminder for everybody to check their accounts and change passwords, just checked and apparently my forum/spam email was pwned in 2 data breaches (2016 and 2019). I already changed my main forum passwords a few times since then (mostly because I forgot my password) but I wouldn't be surprised if there's someone out there pretending to be me on forums I've long abandoned.
