**PLEASE READ** HOW TO AVOID HACKERS

Sun Nov 25, 2012, 2:15 PM

Please 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? (Scroll below the pictures to know the difference.)



The first login screen is fake, whereas the second one is real.


How to know the difference!


The difference between the two is all in the address bar, which is where you type a website link or where the website link shows.

In the fake one, the url is http://bosslegen.de/users/login

In the real one, the url is https://www.deviantart.com/users/login

The key differences are:
HTTP vs. HTTPS
BOSSLEGEN.DE vs. WWW.DEVIANTART.COM



Hopefully, this helps you point out the difference between the two. Remember, if you see the fake one to IMMEDIATELY CLOSE THE PAGE. DO NOT ENTER ANY INFORMATION.

Be safe,
Jose :heart:

Please read to avoid being hacked! Fav, comment, and share so everyone can see it!

If your account is hacked, then not only will it be deactivated, but it will be used to hack other accounts!!

thank you. thank you a lot for this tutorial. i also learned special information that i will give to you as a reward: a guy on twitter named dong force is responsible for all this. i have proof. i can't make a link since i'm using my ipad, so :iconkirlia424: is the one that showed me. dong force is targeting in particular people with the asperger sindrom like me, (:iconkirlia424:,:iconthatdamndirtyape:,:iconcoterangers:, ect...) because the whole point of this is that he started an anti-asperger campaign. it's equivalent to racism. if you know any deviant with asperger syndrom, warn them. Now, have a nice day!

Thank You.

I am in definite agreement with this advice as well as the other good fellow talking about the situation concerning Asperger's Syndrome. I too have this condition, but am faring quite well with it; there are the several downsides to that in which of how it makes me the person that I am speaking on here at this very moment, but most of which are not quite severe and are fairly manageable by my sense of self standards. I was only able to be diagnosed when I was at least 14 years of age, but now I am 20, turning 21 this January, am currently attending a nice and quaint community college, and am very much so happy with most of my life. As for the hacking aspect of this discussion, I ran into a similar situation around late March to early April of this year when I previously owned an Xbox 360, and a random hacker (like anyone would ever get to know exactly who they were...) was monitoring my messages between me and my now girlfriend/future wife/partner for life. This person was not only messing with my account, tampering and all, but had been doing quite a large sweep across the server more closely associated with the region I am located in. I have lived in Mississippi my entire life, but had never anticipated to be dealing with such technological arrogance of that in which is such a person to be poking into people's personal lives; whether it be on a 360, a computer, or a phone, it is something that really and truly needs to be brought to a higher attention for the entire electronic community of anybody that uses the Internet on a casual or regular basis. All in all, total collaboration of complete agreement with the person that did the article and with the kind person that had spoken on the other portion of the online community with Asperger's Syndrome. Anyone and everyone that is a user or uses deviantART, or anything else online oriented, I bid thee a good day and may everyone be safe on this conformity/beneficiary that is the Internet.
