Sploggers compromising MySpace

November 27th, 2006

Blogspot now has company.

Though myspace has had its own problems dealing with account spam, it now appears they will have to deal with splogs. Sploggers seem to have compromised myspace captcha system, and are using it heavily to promote affiliates.

I came across a link farm generated using myspace, and indexed by Technorati. Its time blog search engines exercise some caution when indexing myspace pages — possibly employing the same techniques they have been using against blogspot accounts.
