E.politics Got Hacked!

Ouch, we got nailed — the version of WordPress used on e.politics was out of date and apparently left the joint vulnerable to a nasty hack that inserted invisible links to spam sites in some articles, apparently to gain the evildoers up some search engine cred. I’ve fixed the bug and am in the process of repairing the few dozen articles that got hit, so if you see anything that looks squirrelly, pass it on. Thanks to reader Chris Muenzer for tipping me off to the problem and how to fix it — if you’re using WordPress, better upgrade. Weirdly enough, besides the spam links, the hack seems to delete the HTML paragraph tags in the posts — don’t ask me why.
