There’s an interesting, destructive little exploit being used to spam Performancing.com and doubless many other blogs at the moment. It took a small amount of investigation but was fairly easy to work out, and rather than sit on the info and hope it will go away, I’ll show you how it’s done, so that Plone might work to fix this problem. At least they could alert their users to the risks.
How it Works
1. Find sites built with Plone.
2. Join those sites, and create a page like this one. Notice that it redirects to Performancing.com?
You can make it do that by putting code like this in the body:
Why It Works

Ordinarily I’d not waste time with it, but if it starts affecting my sites, i get kind of interested in seeing it stop you know?
