Why was I looking up the Digg source code? To grab some cool CSS styling for our blog and look what I found. BTW this face was only present on the front page of Digg, and not on other pages and links. Who do you think this face resembles? Has the Digg.com page been hacked?

Who is the Mystery Face on Digg?

If you look carefully at the source code, it reveals some links and a password also.

The link goes to the site HellisNigh.com, which asks for 6 passwords, and this seems to be one of the passwords which you see in the code. It has other links pointing to Dante’s Inferno, which it is one of 2010’s Most Anticipated Videogames. So this is basically some promotional advertising game going on as Dante’s Inferno hits stores on Tuesday Feb 9, 2010. You can Preorder Dante’s Inferno right now.
