I've just become aware of this security breach by visiting Upwork on Facebook. I've just read through all these community posts in this thread and there only appears to be ONE reply from a moderator Valeria.
As otheres have posted - shut the site down intil it's fixed!
We removed the images from these threads as per our community guidelines. We're aware of this issue and the root cause has been resolved. We're gathering more information and will share an update shortly. Thank you for your patience.
Those (vague) community guidelines - they come in so handy at all times, don't they?
Just delete it - and it never happened.
Even though we were just relaying information Upwork compromised in the first place!
And now I get a 502: Bad Gateway error message while trying to browse job listings. Oh well, I suppose since most of the work I had lined up for today were for clients that aren't on the Upwork platform, and I'm already caught up on their work, guess I'll take the rest of the day off and hope to be able to submit some more proposals tomorrow.
Does Upwork offer paid vacation in times like these? *insert sarcasm*

And what the heck is this under My Stats? Is this an attempt at adding some unwanted feature and thus the reason why the site has gone beserk today??
This looks like my productivity chart.
Oh-oh.... Isabelle, whatever statistical language is that I see from your screenshot? My hope of getting back to work soon is beginning to dwindle if there are such experiments going on behind the scenes.
I wish we had 2 parallel platforms - one trying out new features till the site is certified stable with them, and one for our normal day-to-day operations.
