    PostSubject: ACCOUNTS HACKED!   Mon Mar 19, 2012 6:57 pm

    This is urgent; I went to the Gallery to look at the cards which had been uploaded and noticed that mine had a comment. It was spam/hacking. I looked a few more and it was the same thing. I noticed that the website had a new design and I wonder if somehow a virus got in. You should look into this right away and I would caution anyone not to open ANYTHING that is unfamiliar or looks off. Including from valid email addresses; be careful.

    Oh no! It does look different--I got out quick! Is it okay to load my card to flickr and then add it to the CYAO thread? I don't want to chance a virus--we just had to replace our computer once because of that.

    The gallery is fine. There is nothing wrong with it at all & it has not been hacked.

    The comments were made by someone who registered with a valid email. It's as simple as deleting their profile & comments. DONE. These people can not do or see anything more than the average member.

    I am the one who made the gallery changes....not a hacker.

    I wasn't suggesting that the changes were caused by a hacker, but rather the comments left (although appearing to be a valid member name) were certainly not appropriate for this group.

    I work in IT at a state university and WE have issues with this type of thing. It's also called Phishing and it is a way to entice you to enter personal information or go to a website. I know from first-hand experience what a virus/hacking/phishing can do and it is *always* better to err on the side of caution. I didn't want anyone to go through that experience.

    I'm glad to hear it was easily corrected, but someone posted that information with what seemed to be a valid name and email address and this site and these groups certainly don't want that type of information.

    Thanks for the warning Verena! Now a days, we can't be too careful!
