 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 focusandframe'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

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

Thank you guys :heart:

"suspicious new deviant/or the one with no artworks in their gallery"

As in no sign of deviations at all? From their personal gallery to their favorites?


I'm asking this just to be clear.

Usually a scam would come from a Deviant Account that isn't used for art [why would someone post art if they know they'll get banned anyway, yeah?], and is only used for the scam. So if an account tells you about stolen art, and they don't even have any art in their Favourites or Gallery, they're probably not an art appreciator, and are lying.

Unless they are a thief that has used other peoples work or pretend to be someone else to damage their image

The second part I forgot to put was "If any of their work is stolen [even one], don't trust them."
