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 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 SQL injection is in place.

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

  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.
