A post on Official Google Blog said that Google has decided to discontinue Click-to-call project. The message had grammatical errors and in the last sentence mentioned that "message has been translated using Google language tools." Google quickly removed the post and said :

"A bug in Blogger enabled an unauthorized user to make a fake post on the Google Blog last night, claiming that we've discontinued our AdWords click-to-call test. The bug was fixed quickly and the post removed. As for the click-to-call test, it is progressing on schedule, and we're pleased with the results thus far."

So, was the Official Google Blog hacked? Was it a security flaw? Can this anyways affect other bloggers? Google answers none of these nor does it any assurance to the bloggers.
