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.

Actually Hoka was hacked by Dongforce and at first, it appeared that she had her account back but now she can't access it AGAIN. AT ALL. 0_0 So creeped! When I visited his profile, no pop-up window appeared for me to sign-in. Confusing or what?

Speaking of nastys on the site, anyone having issues with when you click on a deviant, it takes you to a raunchy gif site? That's been happening to me lately. I click on some art and it redirects me to like a porn gif site, it's terrible D:
Have to go back real quick

Hasn't happened to me yet. :shrug: With me, if you click on a certain user, it will take to the dA login screen. If you log in on that page, you will be hacked.
