I've got something weird in Duolingo's email.

Hey guys,

Today i've noticed about a new email. So i opened the Gmail and saw a weird thing in the email. (you can see it if you click on the link) https://gyazo.com/9e85f23a61949b5cd8d371363428a1fe

You can see here a strange .ru website next to the Hi. The website that you can see here is redict me to an adult site (you know what i mean). What is going on? Because i have no idea.

Thanks

@Dash-Army

This is what spammers / hackers have been Duolingo on Memrise and Duolingo this year (I think it also was last year).

  • they create user accounts with arbitary names
  • they create MEMS with offending content
  • the mass follow people
  • they hack accounts
  • they change bio fields (hence Memrise made their web portal bio field invisible and/or deleted it - I can not even edit it anymore!!)
  • they hack into your user profile and change name/bio, etc.
