Machiniplex Site Hacked?

Sorry about all of the duplicated posts in the RSS feed. I think maybe our site has been hacked as I haven't worked on the blog since the 'Saving Grace' post. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to combat this kind of thing?

    I'm guessing glitch rather than hack Ricky?I've noticed the duplication happen with other blogs also -Kate

    It's happened to multiple sites in the feed. I don't think it's a hack, I think it's a reindex on Google's side, or some alteration in the way the site is read or delivered in the feed.

    Yes, I remember now. There were some other sites where a lot of entries were reposted. Probably a Google issue, I think, since they own Blogger.

    Thanks, Bllius. Here's what Phil had to say via email:

    I think perhaps Google is doing something new with the RSS feeds coming from Blogspot blogs, reworking your feed and causing articles to be submitted again with something looking a bit different to MachiniFeed's duplicate detector. I say this because there has been at least one other Blogspot blog that had the exact same thing happen. So I don't think you were hacked. I've removed the duplicate articles for now, and will be keeping an eye on things to see if I can figure a way to prevent the duplicates from being missed.

    Glad to see we didn't get hacked :)

    Hi Ricky, I'm sorry this comment doesn't pertain to your site problems, I just wanted to drop you a line and I couldn't find your email contact info.

    I'm helping the Wyoming Film Office spread the word about their short film contest. Information is below, and the deadline is on the 30th of April. With the deadline coming up soon, we'd like as many people as possible to have the chance to enter, and we're hoping to receive more Machinima entires. You don't have to be from Wyoming to take part in this contest. This link is for the general press release- http://pitch.pe/5178 and this link explains how to enter- http://bit.ly/olWtD

    Got your info, Molly. I'll post about the contest asap. Thanks for the note.
