Just got a password reset notification email.

Can't really understand the mentality of people that set out to cause digital vandalism.
Angsty, pathetic little minds, so stunted on the creativity front that the only way they can feel any sense of accomplishment is by undoing someone else’s efforts?
I just can't think that....small.

You can do any number of things with your time, any number of wonderful things to make your mark on the world. If all you can come up with is doing something to make another person’s life more difficult: you’re a bit of a prick.

If you got a password reset email... don't you think the person who got it sent might have misspelled their own email and it ended up being yours by chance?

I mean, if someone's going to hack your account, the last thing they'd do is request a password reset. They don't have access to your email, and it's pretty obvious that you check it, so what would be the point in that?

I'd say such a person is more than a bit of a prick in that circumstance, Jack, but I do agree with the general sentiment. Very annoying.

But of they hack your account, they can be noticed being a prick on a massive scale!  All the work you've done over the years effectively becomes the stage that they can cavort on without having to put in all the effort.

Feeding on Schadenfreude isn't "a bit of a prick," that's full-fledged dickery, complete with framed diploma on simulated parchment and a pretense to like martinis.

I think one of the most sad and pathetic things a person can do is try to take credit or ruin another person's life. It's not "trolling", being cute, or funny. It's called sad and being a low-life.

well, mostly they're doing it to see if they can, usually.

it's why when you just set up your security, no matter how proud of it you are, the worst thing you can do is immediately turn around and say "I just made a security system that can't be hacked!", you'd attract less attention painting a target on your skull and walking out onto a shooting range. but don't take my word for it, ask Sony.

that said what a miserable thing to have happen to you, hopefully there won't be any more of that any time soon.

Believe me, you are not the only person who's had this sort of thing happen, since I've actually had  e-mail notifications about changing my password on here quite a few times as well! I've had my account hacked into a couple of times before, and I certainly hope that it never happens to me again! :worry:

I've seen a lot of bullshit pulled, there's been people on DA and YT where they get their account hacked and some massive idiot feels the need to dump porn onto the account, get it banned and screw the artist/video maker.
I don't get why that is, 30 seconds of laughter vs years of work set back?

There's pranks and then there's being a total dipshit.

Just be careful JJ, check the address of where you may be entering your pass because there's some real crafty douche bags out there.

It's sort of the same mentality behind tagging a building, but I'd consider hacking someone's profile even lower.
Most grafitti artists won't use the others' work in their antics, so vandalising someone's art (to me and many others) is something that is the artistic equivalent of murder.

I had that with an email account once; claimed someone had tried to open my account in Pakistan. I was very tempted to change my password to "FUPakistan" after that. But I decided against that in the end since I can't blame Pakistan for a small amount of a-hole hackers.

could be spam mail.. do not open it! then reset your password in Deviant art. that way it is safer.!!  Also try checking your computer for Trojans (the Virus types as they could be hidden).. good luck

Ah, welcome to my world. This happens to me almost monthly either here, on Facebook or to my account where I host my website. lol They also like to use my emails to create accounts in my name all over the place - easily reported to the websites and removed. It is like these dingbats don't realize that I will get the emails. It really is too bad - like you said, angsty and pathetic. lol

My Paypal account was hacked recently and 50 quid stolen!!!! Got it back from Paypal, but it prompted me to update my passwords for most of the sites I use. Annoying as I keep forgetting the different passwords I now have. Scumbags should be sent to... Mars. One way, all expenses spared. Clearly your DA account has value. YNWA

I have a friend of mine whose League of Legends account was hacked. They didn't change the password however, so when my friend logged on he found that someone had bought a ton of RP and skins on his account (which is great since the hacker had used his own money for it). Quite a weird situation.

Up until about a minute ago I had the same old password I've used with DA for years.

About once or twice a month I'll get a message from gmail about some Chinese jerk trying to access my account. They are forced to give up when they're faced with an authentication code request.

You know, if they spent as much time and effort creating their own work rather than trying to fuck up or steal someone else's they would create some truely bomb ass work.  How much creativity is lost on this kind of negative behavior?
