Link Module from Netvibes Changed : Thumbnail ON of OFF

On some of our Public Pages, like CMB and EduCMB we placed several Link Modules to show links to content on the website of our library. The Link Module then displays a Thumbnail from that page/site.

A few day ago suddenly the thumbnails for links within the www.rug.nl domain were replaced with little indecent pictures, clearly not coming from this university portal.
Quick contact with Netvibes, resulted in quick action: they decided to block thumbnails for www.rug.nl at once, and investigate. My question to them : is the rug-site hijacked or the Thumbshots.org-site?
The outcome is still unsure, they now noticed trouble with Thumbshots and Google Groups as well.
They DID act quickly again in adjusting the Link Module: you now can turn the Thumbnail ON or OFF!.
