What's with this hacker crap?

HunaChima Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So apparently theres a hacker or more than one whatever, that are lurking dA sending a link 'Stolen from <Link>' and if you click it, it does as if you have logged out and when you log back in, it send all your info to them?

Can someone explain to me what the hell is going on? o-o

It's a phishing scam; the link is to a fake dA page that isn't really from dA, so you think you're logging into dA but you're really sending your log in information to another site so they can access your account as well. You can always protect you from such attacks easily by looking at the URL of the page you're trying to log in to. There was even an exploit where some journals and profiles would redirect to such a page; this exploit has been fixed and we're working on more countermeasures and identifying the causes.

To anyone affected, please see FAQ #660: My deviantART account has been hacked. What can I do?

I hope that helps :) Please see our Need Help? thread when you have a question or need help with dA :lock:
