Hacking issue

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 25, 2012, 8:48 AM


Alright, I just got a journal message from DragonHunter10. Apparently, there is a hacker going around that can easily steal your account if you aren't careful. The username for said hacker is gary-niger. If you click on his profile, it will take you to a page that looks exactly like the page you'd see if you were trying to submit something while not being logged in. But there is a difference. The URL is for a German phishing site. If you log in to dA from that site, they will have your password and your account will be taken over.

DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!!!

If you don't believe me, click on his username above, but do not log in from that page. Just look at the URL and hit the Back button on your browser. I don't want anyone to lose their accounts, especially to hacking scumbags.

UPDATE: PlushYumi is another one.

UPDATE 2: DONGFORCE is another one. Two of my close dA friends got hacked by him already. :(

UPDATE 3: Seems the matter is finally over! :D

First, the matter has been solved to my knowledge. Second, as long as the URL says deviantart.com, it's safe. If it doesn't say deviantart.com, you are safe as long as you don't log in from that page.

The matter has been settled. But should something come up again, check the URL closely.

It seems to be settled. I'd still keep your guard up, just in case.
