It seems I hate reddit and imgur and more and more every day. 4chan too, though I haven't noticed them doing anything since the SJW takeover, apart from the recent new ownership. (too bad there's no /v/meanwhileon4chan)

It just makes me want to stay on voat, 8chan, slimgur, and veuwer.

Well 4chan got bought out by the original shady owner of 2ch. It's about to go into free fall.

Is it ddos'ing 8chan or 4chan? Most of the comments in that thread are saying 4chan.

It links to a small .jpg file on 4chan and a much larger .swf file on 8chan. The exploit is contained within that .swf file. This harms 8chan disproportionately and evidence points to it being an infamous autist who works tirelessly to fuck 8chan up. I think he planned to hit both but the same vector didn't work on 4chan's flash board so he gave up and linked to a banner instead just so it had some trivial DDoS potential.

EDIT: Worth mentioning that while it does effectively DDoS, it is not the main method of attack. People who have dismantled it claim it tries an XSS attack on 8chan that sets up a C&C beacon for two malicious websites, one masquerading as 4chan's CDN and the other a domain with 8chan in it.

EDIT 2: Also worth mentioning that some of the people from 4chan's /g/ investigating this exploit ended up getting shadowbanned because they were directly linked to the thread. Good job Reddit.

I think I missed something a while back and now I'm aware people hate Imgur but can't seem to find any information on why. What happened?

If they could prove this was done intentionally, couldn't it land Imgur in hot water, unless im mistaken this seems like it would be illegal

I seriously doubt it's intentional on Imgur's part. I find it far more likely that they're incompetent enough to give whatever troll wanted to stir shit with 8chan the means to do so than that they themselves want some attention from 8chan.

Especially if their actions could be considered criminal and involve them directly.

Does intent have to be proven to sue them in a civil court? I was under the impression the burder of proof was way lower in the US.

Did you miss the part where they registered name-alike domains to 4chan's CDN to disguise it? Or the part where they monitor your 8chan traffic? You think a special /r/4chan-only iframe+script of that complexity was an "accident"?

Edit: your whole comment history is downplaying controversy, why am I even arguing with a shill...

From another thread :

Considering how 8chan is anti SJW and very vocal about GG, it's in the realm of possible things that imgur did this.

Consider this: They got FPH banned because the mods made fun of them. Is it really unreasonable to consider they did this to piss off 8channers and shut down their site?

It's a Furry Autist named Bui who did it, not the Imgur staff.

Is this Imgur themselves doing this or is it trolls/hackers?

Very fishy indeed. Why would they even do such a thing?

I agree, let's not stoop to their level and start pointing fingers prematurely.
