    Sorry, but what?

    Was that a takeover? You are the only one reporting this mate. I just logged in under all skins with my phone (android) and do not see such a thing. Doesn't sound like this is something on our end at all.

    BTW I also just noticed your other post, the one you posted after this one:

    https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/sony-blocking-ps3s-from-psn.416515/

    Also a login issue, this one with Sony. You sure there's nothing funky going on in your network? Regardless, a screenshot and perhaps URL properties would be handy.

    Sound like a network issue rather than a site issue.

    And you got a free bit of art culture. ;)

    Haha dude that's a painting of the bible story where Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son but God stopped him at the last second. I was like rape...wtf?? But then when I googled the painting, I agree with you... the artist def did slip that in to be inferred subconsciously. I came here for tech... not to analyze the mind of an ancient painter, this has made my morning.

    Analyse probably wasn't the best word to use when discussing what nosien thought the image was about...

    Yeah its weird.

    The image didnt appear when i logged in on other devices, only on my phone and only when using wifi. When i switched to mobile data, the image didnt appear and i could login.

    I switched back to wifi and the image didnt appear and has not since.

    Was i "hacked" or something?

    I dont have access to a pc atm so i cant privide any url details etc.

    I don't think it's a "hack". More like a redirect? Make sure you cleared all your Safari cache.

    Probably a redirect from some other site you're not telling us you were at lol.
