'Blogjackings' offer unwelcome surprises
By Ralph Ranalli, Globe Staff

Dark clouds are gathering over the local blogosphere

I tried a couple of experiments -- manually typing in the URL myself, asking a colleague with cast-iron sensibilities to try it on his machine -- and confirmed that the Food Market Index URL was redirecting me to a porn site, and a particularly graphic one at that.

What's more, the attacks seem to be focused on Blogger, the nation's largest blog network, which was bought by search giant Google a while ago and which has been a focus of splog attacks as well. Both Food Market Index and See Todd Run are hosted on Blogger.
