I've been given a heads up that has done some excellent sleuthing and investigation into hijacked LJ affiliate links:

Expect this post to be update through the day as I find out more and come up with a good summary.

ETA: No good summary, but I feel like I should say code got taken down, etc etc, business as usual.
