that sequence of him picking up silverware is one of the funniest bits of physical comedy of this century.
@jackdaw_ruiz "you taste like a burger, i dont like you anymore" is also one of my favorite lines in any movie
@Zoe 💖💖 thank u zoe
@citrustwee Hi, is this an instance-related issue or is there a vulnerability in Mastodon that's being exploited?
@lstamellos i think it is instance-specific but i can't say that with full confidence
@citrustwee Thank you for taking this issue seriously, I appreciate it.
@sinistar of course!! :)
@citrustwee is it just .social or other instances as well??
@raekh so far i've only gotten reports about .social accounts, so it's pretty safe to say that it's just .social
@citrustwee what happened on mastodon.social???
@mimorinka i'm not sure! old inactive accounts are being compromised and used for spam
@citrustwee I'm afraid that a part of raw data which cotains passwords had been compromised
@mimorinka i can't really comment on that since i have no real insight on the tech side of things!
@citrustwee is there any official announcement from admin?
don't use the same password on different sites
don't know what your passwords are
use a password manager
DEFINITELY setup 2FA for your accounts. I wish this was mandatory, but since it isn't, just do it.
