I think I may have almost been hacked by x__0 [urgent]

My browser / operating system: Windows NT 10.0, Chrome 61.0.3163.100, Flash 27.0 (release 0)
I was on x__0's profile and suddenly, my whole screen glitched and my screen went black except for the tabs in chrome. Then, duplicates of my screen appeared on my screen and a glitched box appeared. This is very strange. I think I was almost hacked. I've been trying to spread the news so people don't have it happen to them. If I wasn't almost hacked, it is a major scratch glitch. Please help. This is urgent.

set [variable v] to [true]
if <<I finally learned how to do a signature :: sensing> = <variable :: variables>> then
set [response v] to [YES!!!!!]
end
say (show::looks stack) for (stop [all v]::cap) secs

X__0 is not a hacker. Stop the paranoia! This is just a glitch with your browser. x__0 did not cause it to happen and the Scratch Team can't do anything about it.

It isn't paranoia and my browser never glitches like that. This has never happened before. How would my browser randomly glitch that badly?

It most likely is an internal computer error.

I think AmazingMech2418 is right, x__0's profile is creepy, and the only actual project (wich is also creepy) x__0 states that itself is an error. if x__0 is not a hacker just messing with people. then I think x__0 is an ether rouge or broken AI.

To my knowledge it's an experiment started by Dyaros, not an AI. It has sort of a creepy hackerish feel to it, sure, but if it was actually anything harmful I'm sure it would have been banned by now.

It wasn't an account hack, it was a web browser hack.

An account hack would mean that my account was used by x__0 while a browser hack can change things only with my browser window.

Then I'd just suggest you talk to the ST using “contact us” if you feel you've been hacked.

Try reproducing this glitch. Use Snipping Tool to show us the glitch in action.
That way, more experienced… uh… tech guys can help you.

To clarify things, @x__0 isn't a malicious hacker. He/she is an ordinary Scratcher who uses special techniques to get the animated thumbnails, remixes of own projects, featuring of unshared projects, etc. It's all just paranoia.

I could draw it, but can't do it with snipping tool.

Then, someone tried to hack me through x__0's profile.

I mean come on, just cause you were looking at his page when you were assumably hacked doesn't mean he or scratch had anything to do with it. and yes, it could have still just been a flukey thing that happened on your browser.

How do you know for sure you've been hacked?
