Hijacking affiliate links

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

What is LJ doing to my links?
What is LJ doing to my links? Part 2
What is LJ doing to my links? Part 3

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.

The code was obfuscated (i.e., made intentionally difficult to read) and the same script is being served up by other sites, too. It's definitely from a third party and I doubt if they even looked at what it was doing before dropping it into their production environment.
