Strange Imgur Embedding Behavior with Mediator
I had a really weird case happen to me about a month ago.
A post I wrote, about some action movie and with IMGUR url's included, got somehow changed.
What happened was that when I wrote the post, the embedder worked perfectly, and it showed the photos as it should do.
About a week later, I notice that my post got a lot of attention, and I visit it again, only to see that the embedded images had been changed with
semi-graphic nude gay porn. However once clicked, the link was still valid, and it took the browser to the relevant photo gallery of the action movies.
We had absolutely no idea what had happened, so we either assumed that:
We had been hacked (we were not)
A fellow admin had played a trick on us (which had not happened)
Imgur was weird problems
Imgur had an aggressive no embedding/hotlinking policy (it does not)
The album uploader had somehow figured out a way to mess around with viewers (not apparently so)
Mediator v0.2 had a problem
Now every time I post an Imgur link, it seems that this "gay album" has been deleted, and now it shows this on every
I was using Mediator v0.2
The behavior disappeared once I updated to v0.2.8
I have just no idea what to make of it, and it's no biggie any more. But I wanted to write about it!
