Funny HTML hack in Bit.ly on Twitter

Just saw a funny bit.ly hack/spam

scroll down to see the title tag that shows the link to my blog when I mouse-hover on the bit.ly  url.

Now you get this error message if you go here- because I changed my url structures. Note the bit.ly url is uATQ13 (:-)

http://www.decisionstats.com/2008/07/02/phpb

But if you go to bit.ly and type in

bit.ly/uATQ13

You first get a redirect to usyy.net/redirect.php?cookies=true

and then a redirect to

http://www.justz.info/mobilemoneymachines

What surprised me is the hacking of the bit.ly link

which changed the title in html (html newbies refer to http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_standard_title.asp)

text from usyy.net/redirect.php?cookies=true to http://www.decisionstats.com/2008/07/02/phpb (see bottom of the picture) when my mousetip hovered over it. How did this happen? Is it due to my chrome extensions ..hmm..or is it my alternate identity (cyber Jekyl and Cyber Hyde)….hmmm

Now I know it has just been two days since I wrote on chrome redirect extension called mediaafire (which could be one possible reason for this since I installed it too on my chrome browser besides having the adblock extension) http://www.decisionstats.com/chrome-extension-mafiaafire/

 

But nice hack-huh- two days is fast!!! Someone help bit.ly/chrome/me figure this out. 😉
