Default Speccy servers compromised? Possible future problems..

Looks like somewhere along the lines speccy was compromised. No big threat, but interesting none the less.

Piriform released a new version (1.10.248) yesterday which resolves the issue by simply omitting the problematic 'external IP address' section completely.

I tested the latest portable version and it has been removed. Bit worrying that it was there originally (hacked into or introduced in development?) but at least they have fixed it within 24 hours of being notified.
