 Hello, everyone!

Please, :+fav: this journal and spread the word so more people can see this.

__



I just got a note from honey-sempai173 telling me that someone stole my art and he/she sent a link.
I clicked on it and it showed me dA login page, but a fake one. Here it is:


Have a look at looooooong weird address in the address bar:

11 by naked-in-the-rain


 I didn't type username nor password, 'cos it's a fraud. If you do it by mistake, someone will be able to hack your dA account.


If you by accident get this message from honey-sempai173 or any other suspicious new deviant/or the one with no artworks in their gallery, please report them and never ever type your password in the fake login page window they re-direct you to.

Real deviantart.com login page is www.deviantart.com/users/login (safe to click, but won't be found if you're already logged in)

Remember this.


And for more info, you might wanna check winehaus's journal below on How to avoid hackers:

**PLEASE READ** HOW TO AVOID HACKERSPlease add this Journal to your Favourites and share! This way everyone can know how to avoid being hacked!
UPDATE: namenotrequired has informed me that this problem has been detected and fixed. Everything should be okay now. However, I will keep this Journal up just in case it happens again and the hackers find a way around it. Remember to check for the "key differences!"
Have a great day. :love:

Recently, people like J-u-d-a-s have been hacked, having their accounts deactivated. Fortunately, J-u-d-a-s was able to regain control of his account.
I will be telling you how to avoid the same thing happening to you.
First of all, I'd like to say that the hackers are very smart and deceitful. They have made a login page very similar to deviantART's, but with this tutorial, you will be able to see the difference between the two and know whether you really need to log in or if it's a scam.
Can you tell the difference between the two? (Sc

What's Wrong With This Login? by MoontheMew

I'm sorry for typing mistakes, I posted this as fast as I could.

Thank you guys :heart:

thanks for the warning.
seriously pisses me off to see people do this (the hacking, not your alert journal)
good thing we have people like you to alert us to the fraud to help balance things out right?

There's a website I know of that actually IS stealing peoples work. Mine, the DA admins and just about EVERYONE in my watchers/ watched lists have had work stolen and posted on this website.

[link]

This website has Stolen work from EVERYONE that I typed into the search box- they didn't bother taking the watermarks, signatures OR original deviantart addresses off, but are STILL claiming the works under copyright!

This isn't a phishing link or spam. It's a warning to spread awareness and your work could be on there.

shit, about everyone is there.
which leads me to believe that is is simply an automated website, as it says nothing about a person posting, and after some research, it uses the same image url as the post on DA.
I am not in any way defending them, but stating that before accusing of theft, actually have a look at the sources. they cannot claim those works under copyright, as they are still linked to the original deviation page take your snuffums the voodoo rabit for example: [link] this is taken from the site, and [link] this is the direct link to your deviation (go to the deviation, click to full-size, right click, get image url)
they have in no place covered it by copyright or creative commons, and are not infringing your creative commons on that deviation, as you have: [link] on it, allowing them to share it under the same url, which they are doing. you cannot stop them from doing what they are doing, but if you tell them to take down all your work, they have to.

Phishing websites/attempts usualy don't work. Too many spelling mistakes and obvious suspicious activity. But still, if they do work there a big threat. (Especialy with Bank accounts.)
