FeedBurner, GigaOm, RSS

GigaOM hacked?

GigaOM logoAt about 12:50 PM CST today, the main RSS feed for Om Malik’s GigaOm blog started displaying only links to articles at Panzera Security Blog. Did someone hack into Om’s Feedburner account, or was this an accident?

Update: I’ve contacted Om about it, but I don’t know how much attention he pays to the messages sent via his contact form.

Update: It’s fixed now. No announcement on what happened, but several GigaOM commenters came to the same conclusion as I did.

Update: Barry Abrahamson from Automattic clarifies in the comments that it was a WordPress.com feed caching bug that was giving FeedBurner the wrong feed.
