WEBSITE THAT STEALS ART: DO NOT SEARCH!!!!!!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 22, 2012, 1:56 PM
[NEW DEVELOPMENTS] its worse than some may think ninjakato.deviantart.com/journ…

[UPDATE ON HOW TO HELP SHUT IT DOWN] darlingmionette.deviantart.com… link to a journal on dA on what you can do to help shut the website down.

some of you may have heard of this: DONT SEARCH THAT WEBSITE!!! I've read about this, if you search your username it steals your art, not before, AFTER. DO NOT GO ON THAT WEBSITE ITS A TRICK!

DO NOT SEARCH!!!!!!!!!! IF YOU SEARCH A USERNAME, THEN YOU HAVE SCREWED THAT PERSON OVER!!!!

"Also hey, just saw this whch y'know makes way more fuckin sense

""GUYS STOP PUTTING SEARCHES INTO THAT WEBSITE!!! DO NOT EVEN VISIT IT!

It's a site that works like a search engine and once you enter your username it can search the web and collect the information that way, similar to google. I can't see how else it could possibly have almost every single person who searches for themselves on that site.

I do not believe the site actually hosts your images, but instead snags them up AFTER you make a search. THE MORE YOU SEARCH THE MORE IMAGES/LINKS ARE FARMED ONTO THE SIGHT. THE SITE ALSO SHOWS SIGNS OF HOSTING MALWARE!

DO NOT GO TO THIS SITE. DO NOT ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO SEARCH FOR THEIR USERNAMES. There is already plenty of evidence to show that this is a bad site and there is no reason you should put your computer at risk. If you are wondering if your stuff will show up, chances are it will, only BECAUSE you searched in the first place! Don't let curiosity kill the cat this time!

Read the journal to find the steps you need to take if you wish to report the site BUT DO NOT VISIT IT. You can report the site without needing to visit it.""

apparently this is going around tumblr but I'm not sure where the original post is."

no problem, this needs to get out there to help stop this. All of my art is just for fun on here, but others make a living from dA and something like this can really be devastating.
