This is due to an exploit @kashka and his IRC buddies have spread around the site. I'd advise locking the sub up like PV have done.

Thanks for this. I did it in a rush and didn't have time to do it. I appreciate it and will update my post.

Yes, that's indeed what it is doing. It gets the form from the submission page, fills in the title, then adds the form to the current page (invisibly) and then submits it.

Updating: I clicked it in a VM with a new account, my AV blocked it. All those effected need to get on the AV train, immediately.

Is it Windows-only?

It's not a virus and thus it has nothing to do with Windows directly; however, AV software with browser hooks typically catch these types of javascript chains in links to prevent malware browser exploits. It's exploiting jquery functions readily found in the page's code (javascript is client side code, which means the visitor's browser must be able to "see" it) to post.

Not sure. I clicked on it while using Linux and my AV blocked it.

Hi @typo did this get dealt with?! It seems like a big fucking deal to not have any administrators commenting, and the (FIXED) thing not showing.... In reference to your "account hijacking" post on v/voatdev 3 months ago

I don't think we were ever given a direct response. I think they fixed the exploit and that was that.

Cool, figured it was probably something like that.

I've been had!

I clicked on the link and didn't realize I was forced to post submissions.
