While you were enjoying your weekend, the Official Google Blog was hacked and fake post uploaded.
A bug in Blogger enabled an unauthorized user to make a fake post on the Google Blog last night, claiming that we’ve discontinued our AdWords click-to-call test. The bug was fixed quickly and the post removed. As for the click-to-call test, it is progressing on schedule, and we’re pleased with the results thus far.
TechCrunch has a screenshot of the post.
I’m happy for Google, that they caught the offending post and removed it, but where does that leave the rest of us? Has the security flaw now been fixed? Should other Blogger users be concerned that their blog could be hacked too?
Google needs to post a more in-depth explanation and assure us that we won’t be the next target! I’ve asked for comment.
