For anyone who visited that site, I suggest scanning your computer now. If you filed a complaint, do the same and change your email password. Do what is necessary to protect your computer and personal information. Just thought I cleared that up so others wouldn't get baited into this bullshit. There is also a petition to get the site taken down. It's obviously an online security issue so I don't see why not.
UPDATE: Wallpart.com is a art stealing pagestop. before you read this and comment please read this:
NinjaKato's comment which is very helpful please read:
That site is a phishing site.
They grab images through Google image search I think, which is why when you type a username in there it comes up with not only their art but any art they fav'd or was drawn for them/mentioning their username.
It's also very poorly coded and likely contains a ton of viruses so avoid the site entirely -- This means do not go on it and don't search on it.
This site has been up a while and has no doubt gotten worse and worse since it's garnered more attention, likely from unsavoury types looking for a platform to put more viruses and such.
It also undoubtedly phishes information from anyone who is foolish enough 'buy' something from them. It's not a legit selling site at all, it's a scam (obviously).
The best thing you can do is avoid it. I know it's hard because it feels like art theft, but honestl
Wallpart (part 2)Remember that website, Wallpart? The one where they instantly steal your art? Well, the truth is, it's a phishing site.
Like Google, Wallpart behaves like a search engine... for images. Basically, if your art exists on the Internet, it is automatically stolen by Wallpart and "sold" for a random amount of money. But really, you are unable to buy these images. Pressing the "buy" button, where applicable, will do nothing.
Now, here's the fun part. A usual reaction for an artist is that they would freak out file a copyright claim or a report stating their art is being stolen and used as someone else's property. The creator of the website was so clever that he used reverse psychology on us.
If you filed a complaint to the website with your email address, you just activated a ticking time bomb. By this, I mean as soon as you restart your computer, malware would be unleashed and spam your email. It may eventually make its way to your computer.
I don't exactly know what type of malware
