Codepen Bug or Hacked?

  • # June 29, 2013 at 2:49 pm

    Since the online feedback form of CodePen is under maintenance and a lot of CodePen users hang out here also, I’ll post this question here on css tricks.

    When clicking on “Recent” in CodePen, logged in or not, I always get redirected to “devolr.com”. Is this a bug or is CodePen hacked? Does anybody else experience this?

    Recent works for me

    @RedJokingInn It could just be your computer. You should probably restore to an earlier point and see if that works (if you’re using Windows, which I bet you are).

    I think CodePen is undergoing maintenance. Just checked again and now it doesn’t happen anymore.

    @chrisburton Thx for pointing out the message link in the profile page Chris.

    Or my windows – browser is going crazy. Could be that also. ;)

    Another user was experiencing this too :: https://twitter.com/bartveneman/status/351058912826499074

    But I can’t seem to replicate it. That guy seem to think it was this user http://codepen.io/LEO01/ but again I can’t find a pen that causes an actual redirect. It’s certainly not a hack, but we do of course allow users to run arbitrary code so stuff like redirects can slip through if we don’t stay on top of stuff like that. So if you can find the Pen and replicate the redirect, definitely let me know.

    I found the CodePen that causes the redirection. It’s indeed from that member.
