    Pros:
    The bubbles part with the 16 surveys or whatever it was was pretty fast and you could easily see your progress.
    Cons:
    The second section has a few 'games' or whatever and those take up the majority of the time of the task.

    Probably something to do with that person trying to hack people through it again.

    FYI if you get the scrambled mess of code in your hitforker just block the requester, or refresh seems to have got rid of him for now

    Look at the screen shot I posted earlier, it was impossible to block them due to how scrambled up it was

    Just for the record, blocking them does nothing. Still injects the intended file. At least if it's visible, you know.

    Really? Do you think it is still worth using hitforker right now or is there a real possibility of being hacked somehow?

    Time to run windows defender I guess just to be safe

    I think it is definitely likely. I am stopping using it for now, it's a great tool but a HUGE liability right now.

    I did some minor "computer security related activities" in high school very long ago and the person doing this will probably take it as a personal challenge to succeed.

    Don't take me at my word on this because I'm still investigating... but it seems likely innocent.

    *DISCLAIMER: If your shit gets hacked, I'm not responsible*

    Phew. Wow, I would not have figured that out on my own. Thanks for the heads up, I am going to play it safe for now

    Right as I typed this another one popped up, instantly closed it. Good news is Windows Defender says I'm in the clear, hopefully it is right

    (switches to hitscraper) OMG ITS HERE TOO! GRR


    This time the culprit is "Jasmin Landry" fyi

    It looks like a guy looking for vulns for $$ but yeah there are some serious security issues that people could take advantage of if they wanted to.
