In 1998, Xing Li founded a website known as FanFiction.net, allowing users to post their fanfictions for all to read. You could find most any property with at least one fanfiction tied to its name on the site. Now it’s become a dangerous situation for avid FFN users. An unknown hacker has slithered their way into the site. No user is safe.
If you want to keep access to your old FFN account, or perhaps you are still writing on there, be warned: DO NOT CHECK USER PROFILES.
Currently, neither FictionPress nor Li has addressed the situation. They have also not responded to our email requesting a comment. CounterMail has also been contacted and made aware of the situation by our PR team. This article will be added updated as we learn more.
UPDATE: After a couple of days, FictionPress, the company in charge of FanFiction.net has made note of the situation. They are actively working to fix the security flaw.
