Unknown & unidentified pictures posted under edit pictures in safe mode. Are we being hacked??

A friend on my list posted the following bulletin just now. I checked out what she had stated as the problem and I did find about 10-15 pictures in my safe mode editing of images that were not mine. They did not show up on my page and they weren't there a few days ago last time that I looked at my images while in safe mode. Does anyone know anything about this and if it is something to be concerned about? Also, how to fix it since the pictures don't show up on your page or your photo edit. This is the exact bulletin that was posted...

" I actually found three images there!
Look to see if you also have them and get rid of those hackers acessing your profile

Hey everyone!
just want to ask you all to check your profiles for a Hacker
you will need to go into Edit Profile......

*then Safe Edit Mode.....
*then click on Images.......

if you have the VIRUS you will notice random Pics/images that you do not have on your profile.......

You CANNOT see these images when you view your profile normally!!!!!!

If you find these random Pics/images you WILL need to return to your main page and click on Add/Change Photo then click DELETE!! on the photo on your profile (remembering that the image you found on SAFE EDIT MODE will not appear on the page as you view it normally)

****Please REPOST this to all your friends ASAP"

I tried to follow what you said, just to see, and when I clicked "safe edit mode", it told me I have no groups to edit. GAH!

If you go back there to that screen thereshould on top of the box be links.There should be one for photos and another for video's etc, click on photo or images or whatever and it should take you to your pics and its there that people are seeing pics that don't belong to them.

Hope that helps.

 

I got a few on there but I don't want to delete them since i'm unsure if they will delete my pics and I want them on there still argh lol

I would delete them anyway to be safe. You can always upload them again.

I agree, I can always upload them again. I found about 9 or so on one of myspace pages that I have, and the strange pictures all came from the same profile because I remember I had this person on my friend list from a friend train, but I deleted the friend because they sent too many bulletins for my taste.

But anyways, mizwingzz, I agree with you on this.

When y ou're in safe mode there are a number of tabs to click on. You want to look under "images" which is all the way on the far right hand side.

Got it. But, it won't show me any of the pics at all.

BOOYEAH
Re: Unknown & unidentified pictures posted under edit pictures i

Wow I just did that too.. I had 3 photos in safe edit that were not mine.
Lady did you click on the last tab that said images after you went to safe edit mode?
I went and changed the captions on the pics that werent mine so I knew what to delete. went back to edit profile ( not safe mode) then deleted the pics that werent mine ( according to the captions i changed) because it will show your photo you uploaded when you look. then went back to safe edit mode and the photos that werent mine were gone.

I was good. For some reason I couldn't view my images while in safe mode, but I could read the captions. I counted, and it jived with my uploads.

It doesn't appear to be anything to be concerned about...and is being termed as a "Myspace Glitch". It's possibly related to a new feature they're trying to install with albums on your photo page.

I personally feel that the 300 pictures was an option that Myspace was unprepared for, whether it be server issues, problems with the migration of data to the UK, or bandwidth problems on having 100 million people upload large fire sizes.

Regardless, some of these pictures are funny from the accounts that I'm reading, so who knows (hacker)? It's certainly not malicious code in your profile doing it (virus).
