Guys....I got some really bad news....


We're not going the Q's and A's thing tonight....


Because....

....:iconmakedagreatagain: got hacked....


A group of hackers came to our group and fucking hacked it:


   Group Hackers on the Loose!!!So, recently, there has been a hacker going around hacking groups, removing every submission, and editing the group.
These are the accounts:
http://ohmygodabomb.deviantart.com/
http://grimbogrimbo.deviantart.com/
:new: http://theysetupusthebomb.deviantart.com/ oh boy, another similar account has been made....
The first group to be affected by this was the living-aircrafts-01 group
Here are two journals talking about this incident

I know what you might be thinking and no, I am not speaking just for the plane group, I am speaking for every group. I advise to disable the automatic accept co-founder option on your group and block and report the accounts.
And please, spread this journal so you can protect your group and yourself before this happens to you~...
  Sorry!Well, some dumb-ass accepted a group hacker into the group, and now everything is fucked, sorry about that! We're working to get things fixed ASAP.


....And now.... everything we once have is now gone....


.....Everything is gone...


So, guys.....If you have any groups....


Please show what happened to ours and tell them to block them as soon as possible.


PLEASE GUYS.....PLEASE SPREAD THIS SHIT....


....I don't want anymore groups to be victimized....Like ours.



More information about this:


    Living-Aircrafts-01 has been HACKED!!!https://youtu.be/5t0nwKV5Meo Here's an admin's view of the damage that was done in the group log. 
UPDATE 10:50 EST: I have contacted the help desk over this matter, and am still waiting for a response from Thomas to figure out what will be done. By searching the activity of this user, I have found they only joined earlier this evening today, and have made no comments or posts of their own. They have only watched and hacked four other groups in addition to Living-Aircrafts-01.
I need everyone to report http://grimbogrimbo.deviantart.com this user RIGHT NOW.
He is the one responsible in the activity log for changing everything in the group. I just got back from a night out with my parents who were visiting VA Tech for a football game earlier today (we won, btw), and when I left, the group icon was normal. When I came back, everything was changed. I noticed on my profile that the group widget had changed, and I went in and looked at what had happened. LITERALLY, F
Living-Aircrafts-01 has been compromised!As the co-administrator of what was once a great group, I'm sorry to say that it has been obliterated. The culprit responsible is 
GrimboGrimbo 
They removed EVERYTHING! Even art that was added back in 2013! I'm sorry to say that we can't fix the damage done. It'll be a huge help if you report this person because there is no reason for them to be on DeviantArt. They just created the account to ruin other groups as they have hacked at least 4 other groups.
It'll be a huge help if you guys could report this person and get their account terminated because no one should have their group ruined! Thomas has been contacted as this was not his fault! He did nothing wrong.
 *UPDATE* Both GrimboGrimbo and ohmygodabomb (it's the same person) have been added to the group's blocklist and they will not be removed. I will announce when users can upload their work as we are still repairing the damage done. 
Over and out,, HeavyMetal747
  <da:thumb id="632871708"/>  group hacker!!!So, DA once again did that thing where they try to fix something that isn't broken, and this time they played around with group settings. Because of the adjustments they made, they had to reset "Manage Members," and...naturally, there was a loophole in there that a hacker exploited.
These groups have been hacked so far:
Living-Aircrafts-01
ContributeArt
StreetModders
AdorablesAdoptables
and probably more Worried 
If you are an admin of a group (I'm the founder of Ran-maoFC and a contributor to PhotographySeasons), follow the instructions below to prevent your group from being hacked.

Yep, my group got hit by the same hacker. I didn't let it bother me too much. I just learned a very painful lesson, and started a new group. Either dA can't do anything, or won't do anything. They just let this asswipe run wild, destroying groups all over the site. I hold dA just as responsible as the hacker. It's like dA has a museum of precious artwork, and they do nothing when burglars break in and steal all the paintings in the place. Can you imagine the Mona Lisa being stolen, and the Louvre does nothing about it?
