Strange customer accounts..spam maybe?

I am having this exact same issue - Shopify support seems to think that it is an external issue but it sure is concerning!

They seem to think it is because my theme Brooklyn allows people to sign up without getting to the checkout point. I don't understand what these people could achieve by creating an account on my store though? Very worrying though and lucky that it was picked up within 24 hours....
