    Just logged into my imgur.com account and it appears someone has hacked into my account, mongrels!!

    It looks like my images are still there but I have had hundreds of idiotic, stupid meme and image files dropped into my account, it will take me hours to sort the mess out [​IMG]

    Bloody mongrels!

    I am getting some of my images in the thumbnails, most are blacked out. Going into the albums gives all my images but hundreds of rubbish images/, twitter feeds and manga porn in my folders. It seems to me that I have got hundreds of images that are from someone else's account and have bled into my account.

    I hope they get this sorted sharpish!

    About one or two months ago imgur sent out an email stating their site was hacked a few years ago. Perhaps that is the issue. My account has not been hacked. I suggest you change your password. OR try this site to host photos It is 100% free.

    Code:
    postimages org
    This image host no longer exists in its previous form and I would suggest its current postion is unreliable @bdpopeye

    Here's an article from NOV 2017 about the hack at imgur;
