thank to CHRISwillar for the updated information.

Hey members ; this is just a small warning - there's currently a hacker group going around on dART that steals your login info by using already hacked accounts. Simply, by use of coding, this group has changed the url path of several accounts (one of their tricks is by posting a comment on your works, claiming it has been stolen, followed by a link), so that when you go to visit their profile page, you are instead redirected to what seems to be the dART login page. But it's not! If you take a look at the url, you will see that it's in fact not a dART url at all. This what the fake login page looks like:

Hacker by HalfInane-HalfMentalUPDATED - dA HACKER - REPOST TO PROTECT dA by Soaring-of-the-Sky

One of the victims is ~neomoti - she has been accused for being the hacker, but this girl is not at fault; the hacked account is no longer in their possession however  she has opened another instead to start over -> XxneomotixX she explains it in this video:…

The REAL hacker is apparently the group Dong Force:
They claim to already have info for hundreds of dART accounts, and they plan to disclose them. gary-niger is part of the group.
"Troll coallition causes fear among the people of DeviantArt

Don't panic, just be aware of this; If you are already logged into dART but gets a login page when trying to visit another account's profile page - check the url before typing in your information! Use your common sense. Please spread this around, so that others won't fall victim.

(DF claims to have retrieved more than 2000 accounts out of "courtesy"; claims to have info on more than 2100 accounts)
however  the affected accounts  no longer lead me to the fake login site, so I'm not sure if the attack is over (dART blocked the attack?). I still advice you to be careful, though. Keep an eye on everything suspicious.
The End(?): dART has successfully stopped the hackers' script, so it should be okay. However, please still be careful - you never know when another hack-attack happens again. Also, you might want to take a look on the released list of hacked accounts' info above.

regards CI crew

My old account was hacked, but I never went on that site. I'm basically only having 1 way to get into my account all the time. I just save a deviantART link, which is to my messages, and stuff.
Though I was hacked, I got it back once and then lost it. F**K.

I hope the hacking stops. I'm new, and this isn't a good way to start here. :(
