    It seems that Posterous is the latest victim to fall prey to hacking, and it is a strange one to say the least.

    In a blog post today titled ‘What I do in my spare time’, it says:

    “Hello everybody,

    It’s Julio’s hacker speaking here. I have decided to expose what he like to do in his spare time. He likes to watch porn and view adult content.

    His most viewed site is this camsite: http://exodi.us/cams/melissa_parsons/

    Below are some screenshots of his computer while he’s been viewing adult content. – Thanks.”

    And then there is a link to 4 images of adult websites. We’ve contacted the guys at Posterous and will update here once we hear back from them.

    Update

    It seems the blog post has now been removed.
