    I think I may be onto a big security flaw in a popular piece of blogging software. I have been analysing someones backlinks all afternoon and have seen that all of his links are tactfully hidden with the {position:absolute;left:-xxxx} tag. All of those links are hosted on a certain blog-software.

    For blackhatworlds own sake I am not going to give anymore information, but I would like some 'senior' people to talk to. This could be huge.

    Just to make sure : I am not encouraging hacking, I need security advice and some info on this method.

    I stumbled upon a fairly large WP theme site doing this. They add the hidden links to all of their "free" themes lol..
