Official Google Webmaster Central Blog Feed Hacked, Busted, or Just Strange?



Who wants to provide an explanation as to what just happened in my Google Reader this morning?

I subscribe to the Official Google Webmaster Central Blog’s RSS feed to keep up-to-date with the 2-3 posts the team publish each week. Except this morning, the feed looked like this:

What the fudge?

OK, maybe I’m seeing things. Maybe this is not actually coming from the Google Webmaster Central feed. So, I went to “Manage Subscriptions” to take a look. Nope, it shows the same items, take a look:

 

OK, I thought, maybe someone found a way to hijack the feed, Maybe China is redirecting Google’s RSS feeds to phishing or spam sites. Well, maybe not, because those new items above all go to the same personal site of a photographer. I’m guess they have no idea that this happened.

So, what did happen? Any ideas?
