empathy google talk

I'm trying to sign in to Google Chat using Empathy but continue to get an "Authentication Failed" error despite using the correct password. Following the failed login, I get an e-mail from Google saying that the access was blocked and that I would have to change my settings so that my account is "no longer protected by modern security standards".

Could anyone explain where I am going wrong?

I am selecting "Google Talk" as the chat account type in Empathy.
