Somehow, some spammer hijacked a feed of mine that posts to my Wordpress blog
. Help me diagnose what happened.

I have a shared folder on Foxmarks that I've set up to automatically post to my Wordpress blog, using the FeedWordpress plugin. This morning, a reader alerted me that my blog was full of Japanese spam posts. Looking at the posts, they were somehow injected into my blog via the same pathway that I use to post from the Foxmarks folder. (Each of the posts bears the custom fields that mark a post as coming from FeedWordpress - the syndication source, syndication feed ID, etc.)
Any clue what the source of this spam might be, or how I go about diagnosing this, and then inoculating my blog against it?
