Has Delicious Been Hacked?

I’ve noticed in the last couple of days that a number of blogs I’m subscribed to that use the auto-posting features of delicious, or pull in that RSS feed of bookmarks have been shopping up with some “odd” entries of late. I’ve not been using delicious of late myself, but I still have an account. When I log in over there my library doesn’t appear to have any suspicious links, but the RSS feed sure seems to be a mess. Looks kind of like what I’ve seen when a WordPress SQL injection is in place.

Granted, I’ve been onsite training and traveling this week, so I haven’t had time to check the blogosphere or twitter to see if that has been confirmed, so if anyone has some info to share, please leave it in the comments.

  1. I haven’t noticed anything out of the ordinary and monitor a few delicious powered feeds, but then again I do have several feeds to read at the moment. I started using diigo this week as I discovered that the delicious plugin for firefox screws up the awesome bar in firefox. Diigo seems a bit sow on the bookmarklet but we’ll see how it goes for a week or so.

  2. I noticed it for a couple of days, but haven’t since I said something about it, of course. It was only showing up in RSS, not on the site itself. But I know a couple of blogs had spam links auto blogged.
