spam in the hot topics

Apologies for the spam words that are currently appearing in the hot topics cloud at the moment.

It looks like the BlogJunction blog has been hacked — if you view the page source for the blog, you’ll find multiple hidden links to gambling sites (the links are currently being hosted by Universitat Oberta de Catalunya UOC).

I’ve removed BlogJunction from the list of sites used for the cloud, so the spam should disappear in the next 48 hours.

  1. Indeed, we have a hacker in our midst. I’ve deleted all the spam from the posts and am in the process of resecuring our account.

  2. Cool — I’ll add your feed back into the cloud.
