LJ is under attack again
Just in case you don't have the navigation bar showing on your LJ and thus probably won't see the warning:

Posted on lj_support

There is currently a CSRF designed to mislead you into believing LiveJournal is requesting your username and password, when the data is actually being requested by a third party who is trying to gain access to your account.

The attack will appear as though someone has left you a comment but a popup will come up.

Go here for more details.

Current Mood: pissed off peeved

These attacks have gotten ridiculous.

They really have.

Haven't people got better things to do with their time!

Color me confused, but exactly what good would getting access to my LJ get someone? Will they delete my posts? Say rude things on my FL? Write stories under my name? I'm just...the mind. It boggles.

*Eyes LJ as it didn't send this or any comment on this post*

I guess it's the privacy angle that bothers a lot of people. They make friends only posts or share something between only a few people and if someone got in they could read their posts.

I can see the banner thing. But thanks. LJ has been under attack for ages now.

And it still seems to be happening, it's very slow today and I know at it's been up and down a bit too.

And I love your Christmaified journal.

Thank you!

Thanks for the heads-up! I don't use the navigation bar, so would've been otherwise in the dark.

You're welcome. I didn't used to have it as I don't really like it. But then a friend told me that was where LJ posted this kind of short message so I decided to have it.

LJ has definitely been buggy lately! Hopefully, it's on the mend. I'll have to pay more attention when I go to a LJ that has that navigation bar now. I don't care for them either, but if that's the only way to get the news... Hey, it's been awhile since LJ posted anything in their News comm, hasn't it? Hmm...
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th December 2011 15:13 (UTC) (Link)
It certainly has.

I played with mine so that on my journal & flist it blends in with my background, thus it's not too intrusive. They only use it to post short things, but it does seem to be things they don't post elsewhere *sighs*

I think you're right, it has been some time.

As it happens, I visited a LJ tonight with white text on a black background - Very hard on the eyes! - and found that navigation bar very handy to click the "view in my own style" box. ::g::
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th December 2011 15:30 (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I hate that combination, I find it so hard on my eyes too.

Oh, yes, I'd somehow forgotten the 'view in my style' was on the nav bar - it's useful to have just for that *g*
