Google's Blog Was Hacked!

The image above was the result of the Google Blog being hacked just a short time ago. A friend of the hacker made a post on Digg which quickly made it to a Front Page article. I guess the hacker broke into the blog by guessing the password (they say the password was related to Microsoft). The Google Blog is currently replaced with a cached version of the blog, which is why there are no images. Also, the friend of the hacker put up the AIM conversation they had:
