Tory campaign website redirects to hardcore pensioner gay porn

OK, so I think I might be coming down with something so this will be the last post of the day, but I just wanted to blog a quick comment for those reading who do not follow Twitter. Basically, the Tories latest "Cash Gordon" website mentioned in the previous post is offline (at the time of writing).

The reason is because the developers who were paid to create it didn't, it seems, protect against code injection. The Twitter feed was scrolling as people used the hashtag #cashgordon. The problem was that by inserting javascript into the Tweet comment it was possible to browser hijack people and redirect them elsewhere e.g. to old men getting it on as in Lemon Party*.

People began to do it spades and it's been taken offline and word is that it's being fixed currently.

Epic fail.

Note:
Do not search "lemon party" whilst at work.
