A kindly phone call alerted me late today that EduCommons.org is now running porn links. “Great,” I thought, “we’ve been compromised.” If only that were the truth. The truth is much more painful. Somehow ownership of the domain educommons.org has mysteriously changed hands. And not only did the thieves steal the domain, they are still running the EduCommons logo at the top and have maintained some of the language from the original site. Effect – to the casual user educommons.org is still educommons.org. “And oh, what’s this!?! David has porn links on his sites now?!?”
Please remove all links to educommons.org until further notice. As all WHOIS information for the “new owner” is bogus, any tips or help would be appreciated.
