2012 contest was hacked

The new armageddon film by Roland Emmerich "2012" opens tomorrow, and they've been running a Flash-based promotional game on the dedicated website To win the game you need to answer about 20 questions in a given time period, and your winning score will be added to a leader board. The game allowed you post your score to Facebook. Having successfully navigated the game in a respectable 1 minute and 4 seconds, I went to the leaderboard to compare my score with others. Here's the current leaderboard:

It would be pretty much impossible to post a time of less than 20 seconds, so my guess is "RSV" found a way to bypass the Flash interface and post answers using the known set of questions (it looks like there are about 50 questions in all). If anyone figured out the hack I'd love to hear about it.
