Website cleanup – RSS feed

Received an email from google today claiming there may be some suspicious content on the subdomain – which is just a DNS redirect to Feedburner (a dying RSS service which was bought by Google some time ago). The warning only occurred for this single subdomain, not for this website.

I had a look with several tools, looked into the database and the filesystem but didn’t find anything irregular. Either this was a false positive or the suspicious content is somehow related to Feedburner. Nevertheless I switched off the subdomain and removed the Feedburner service (which was a good idea anyway, the service has been rumored to shutdown). So if you can’t access the RSS feed anymore point your reader to

Some other parts of the website are also a bit out of date, like “Bookmark this on Technorati!”, Flattr links to my inactive account etc. And the end of the year is a good time to clean up the website.
