    Fanfic's been hacked:mad:.

    If you have an account on there, don't visit the site while logged in. If you view a page which is affected when you are logged in, it changes your permissions:down: and gives the hacker access to your account:eek:.

    Saw this mentioned on Sufficient Velocity.

    FF.net's latests statement: "We have plugged the current known attack vector which combined csrf attacks with a html injection bug within the user profile page when access via a web browser. App users are not effected. A security review of the entire system is underway."
