Over the last few days I have noticed a handful of odd looking posts that have invisible images in them that display as broken images for a few seconds then go under the radar, I clicked the edit button to see what was wrong with the image and to clean it up and guess what I found in there:
There is obviously something odd happening here, The image link you see redirects through a PHP script then displays a transparent image to avoid detection.
They are posted by the usual culprits with wacky usernames and posts with broken English.
This is either a new way to get spam backlinks or something malicious, Has anybody seen this before? If so a little insight to what they are up to would be great
