Couldn't have happened to a nicer sexist dinosaur from the 70's.
Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman's blog defected to the Conservative Party for several hours yesterday, after it fell victim to a hacker. A fake blog post on the site read: "To friends, foes and fans, below is a copy of the resignation letter that landed on Gordon's desk this morning." The entry linked to a spoof Harriet …
This was spotted in the early hours of this morning by Guido and persisted till about 9am.
The beauty was that under the link to her blog from her official website (harrietharman.org ) the clever web designer inserted a script to automatically list the latest two blog posts. So the articles showed up both on the backed blog and on her official site.
The moral - be very careful how you use syndicated content.
.... in the next Queen's speech to make it offence to alter blogs by any means whatsoever including editing them which shall also become an offence unless they belong to the opposition in which case deleting them will be mandatory.
Paris, because after writing about "harridan" Harriet, well.... need I say more?

So you're sure it wasn't hacked. Unless you are one of the minions or one of the hackers then how would you know?
The website is back up and the blog is still down... looks very much like their is some vulnerability in the blog system being used, that has been exploited (hacked) to make the hilarious change in site content.
The original blog that reported the issues is also offline. Ah the revenge of Nu Layburr.
BTW: Harriet once had a good password jump up and bit her in the arse. She caught rabbies, gave it to a puppy from Sri Lanka and now three other folk are going to be foaming at the mouth! ALL BECAUSE SHE LET THAT GOOD PASSWORD GET HER!
government going to show they know fcuk all about I.T.
I'm just waiting for the government to speak up about how they do know about I.T because all the school league tables are based around intelligence tests.
Paris; because she is 2**(lost ids) more aux fait with computering than Nu Labour
