Shoutitout blog hacked then restored

The official Shoutitout blog was hacked sometime earlier today by an unknown party. The blog is hosted on Blogger and was restored rather quickly.

Shoutitout said on its status blog that it had contacted Blogger on the issue and were working on restoring it. The blog has to have an associated email with it which according to our sources what had been hacked, so this was actually a Google account that was hacked. The password to this account has been changed and secured to ensure that the issue doesn’t happen again, according to Shoutitout.

The blog went down at an unknown time but the Blogger staff and Shoutitout quickly got the account back and restored the blog and its contents.

Blogger is also been changed to Google Blogs soon, which was leaked today.
