The hint in the comments log from Techcrunch that I forwarded to my blog was that this was an exploit of a hole in the Metaweblog API and RSS, not solely something in Google. I haven't yet been able to confirm that
allegation, but expect that this is just a single high profile instance of what might be more broad probing of Web 2.0 APIs often cobbled together with an eye to quick implementation and short shrift to security.

I have the same fear. As APIs allow the introduction of information from secondary or tertiary sources, the opportunities for mal-includes are plentiful.
