Go into your profile and delete the information - there were many fields filled out - it's not just the avatar change.

I don't think anyone should change their avatars until we get onto the bottom of this

I remember a case where everyone's profile image was changed on an extranet site, and then trying to locate a different image on your hard drive making "browse" your local hard drive gave access to the local hard drive from a hacker.

the avatar can be the trap!!!


OH thank you I will wait then.
thanks very much.

At least it was a nice pic, they could have put anything there.
It's funny how people change their signature in response to the one that was put there.

Chill out people, it takes 1 minute to change it all back.

My avatar is normal-ish.

Either this was a hack, or SO is doing an update. either or this situation stinks.

Anyone have an idea who did this if it was maliciously done?

I think this was an experiment to see how the members react. its kind of funny...

OK, so do we need to buy the points ago for the background? For some reason I can't find the store link.

I agree; if personal info was taken, staff should be obligated to tell us.

ETA NO!! My avatar is gone!!

The evidence seems to suggest this was a hack.

No idea, but we do have some evidence. The avatar of that women and our signatures changed to this crap involving God.

I don't want to touch it just yet. I want to leave it and see if anything else happens. My avatar has already changed once.

I found it mildly irritating, especially after a 12 hour shift at work

If its a drill or joke then my avatar should come back?

this was not a drill or a test or an experiment.

the tool page is back up and Bill is working on a few things. As to the who, the why and to what extent, as soon as Bill is done working on the site, he'll post something.

Agreed, what with the recent spate of Facebook hacks, the concern is private information being stolen.

Also, perhaps 4chan involvement?

Checking if my Avatar has changed (fingers crossed)...

Wahey, it's changed.

That was wild though right :-/

Probably some damn hacker with something against ATS.

But it did say testing... could this mean there's more to come?
