May 5th, 2008, 06:25 PM #1Google Reader (and perhaps others) Spam Injection
So a smaller blog I read about branding and marketing found it's way into my Google reader, as a few good blogs have.
Today, I noticed that one article (in the Reader) was loaded with your normal spam links... Pills, enhancers, etc. So I figured I'd go to the site to see what was up.
But the links weren't on the site. Just in my Google Reader.
Are people finding ways to inject spam in RSS feeds now? (By inject, I don't mean the authors of the blog... I mean 3rd party)

If it was a wordpress blog some folks have found a way to hack into the latest posts using the wp-stats plugin and possibly others. You don't see the links in the blog post, but they are in the view source. They may be easier to see in the rss feeds, I am not sure. I thought some of my blogs were totally trashed, and it was just the last post that was affected. I removed the plugin so they aren't able to get back in. Changed passwords just to be sure...Deborah Carney
