i have been seeing A LOT of spammy pins lately on Pinterest.
you can check bit.ly links by copying/pasting the link into the address bar and adding a "+" (plus symbol) after the URL. this will take you to the bit.ly analytics page for that URL and there is a Long Link shown on that page which will indicate where the link will take you.
better to be safe and check if you see a bit.ly link from someone you don't trust, or seems phishy!

This is not the BBC's fault, this is an image hijacking exploit coming from the domain auoff.info
The BBC can't do anything about it. It doesn't come from them and they can't access the hijacking domain because it's not theirs. They can't fix it.
" If we no longer dare to click on the images that others have pinned it hurts the very core of the site. "
I receive less than 0.001% of my traffic from Pinterest, and there are now more pins and repins of my pictures on Pinterest than there are images on my website. Others may have different experiences, but I did check my logs this morning.
The very core of "the site" is not to send traffic to other websites, it is to keep visitors on Pinterest, mesmerized by assemblies of copyrighted content scraped from other websites by its feverish users.
