Hey guys, There have been new users with stupid User names going around and saying:
"Nice! Check this out: (link removed)"
Along with a link. These are UserBots that will harm you. And I warn you, DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK! It'll take you to a pornography website that may contain harmful viruses that could kill your computer.
PLEASE, Spread this around Deviantart! So we can Warn young users, And All Deviants About this!
Thanks, if you spread this!
Today, I received such a comment on my latest upload. And guess what? I clicked on it. I thought, "Oh, it's just some dumb kid desperate to promote their work".
Thankfully, I didn't get that far. As always, when you're about to leave the site, there's the screen that says "Careful! Out there be monsters!" or something like that. In this case, I didn't have the option to go to the site. Well, I did, but I hesitated because it looked suspicious. After a few seconds, that screen saved me with a nice big fat "FORBIDDEN".
Good Lord, this is just like when I got the skype virus. I beat that, but I don't want to go through that again. I need to be more careful. I'm running a virus scan now, and... things SEEM okay. Like I said, I didn't actually reach the site the link led to. Thank you, DA. You may have just saved my ass.
Some of you may be annoyed by that screen whenever you want to go to youtube or whatever, but THIS is what it's there for, so be grateful.
