I've got something weird in Duolingo's email.
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.
are you hungarian? because everything is hungarian on the gmail page? because if you are szia i guess but ignore that if your are not thanks
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.
