[livejournal.com profile] grass_stained has been hacked. The earlier post made "by her" at [livejournal.com profile] icon_tutorial most assuredly has links to malware. DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINKS. If you have, run a virus check on your computer immediately and make sure that you also check for spyware.

If you see a post up at her journal, DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS. Please assume that it's the hackers continuing to cause havoc until you hear otherwise.

Hacks of this nature are a known issue among large communities. They typically get in by accessing an email you no longer use that is associated with your account.

To protect yourself personally, make sure you control all email addresses associated with your account. You can do so by going here. You can also enable a security question to prevent someone from getting your password using an old email address.

[livejournal.com profile] grass_stained has made an abuse report to lj and is working on regaining control of her journal.


Please try to spread the word re: malware links at [livejournal.com profile] icon_tutorial. The hackers set the community to moderated posting which means warnings can't be posted until [livejournal.com profile] grass_stained regains control of her journal.
