Some hackers decided to replace the DIY mason jar chandeliers on Pinterest with a whole bunch of butts.
Multiple accounts were hacked and promptly flooded with spam pictures, TechCrunch reports. Just imagine: you log in to the digital bulletin board and instead of your usual spread of inspirational quotes typed in Helvetica and recipes for sensible snacks, you just see a variety of butts, along with a few weight loss ads.
More and more scammers have been targeting Pinterest as the site’s popularity has grown. The Better Business Bureau sent out a scam alert a few weeks ago with tips on how to keep accounts safe and how to spot suspect pins.
Although, for the small sliver of Pinterest users who are really only on the site to see butt pictures (and we know those people are out there), this hack must have been a total blessing.
