Anyone here use deviantART? Are they clean of viruses these days?

Asked by Mariah (24650points) January 6th, 2013

I was an avid deviantART user around 2005–2007, but then I started getting viruses. It was always the same one, this fake antivirus software, but I kept getting it. Long story short, I finally pinpointed deviantART as the culprit, and I stopped going there, and I stopped having issues with viruses. I’m 100% sure it was the culprit, and it wasn’t even just from user submitted content – I once got the virus while viewing my own picture.

Well, I really want to start using it again! I’ve been pretty actively drawing and creating lately and I miss posting art and getting feedback, and deviantART is the place to do it – no other site gets such good traffic. Can anyone vouch for them nowadays?
