I was just sent an email from Pinterest that someone had accessed my account from Brazil. That’s when Everything clicked into place.
About the time the GoDaddy Servers went down, I had recently pinned a recipe and noticed this in it’s place:
I didn’t think anything of it at the time, I figured somebody may have lost their image hosting when the GoDaddy servers went down. And then I got the email tonight. Once I received that email, I realized that this wasn’t just an image hosting issue. My account had been hacked. I just spent about 20 minutes (after changing my password) cleaning up my account. The easiest way- that I’ve found- was to go to my “All Pins” view and look for these sneaky little buggers.
I also made sure to report this to Pinterest (with an attachment of the image above) for their records. This has been confirmed on a few sites, but it doesn’t look like it’s making a lot of noise yet. Please pass this message on to other bloggers and your readers!
