Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.
But this still means that the little lock icon (HTTPS) we all trusted to keep our passwords, personal emails, and credit cards safe, was actually making all that private information accessible to anyone who knew about the exploit.
This might be a good day to call in sick and take some time to change your passwords everywhere—especially your high-security services like email, file storage, and banking, which may have been compromised by this bug.
You’ll be hearing more in the news over the coming days. Take care.
Welcome to tumblr mobile where every picture is a gray box. Don’t bother waiting. It isn’t going to load. Just read the captions and use your imagination
The new broadway musical: did tumblr eat my message or did i annoy you
Sequel to: I saw your message in my ask box but forgot to answer it and now too much time has passed so now I’m not sure if I should answer it or not
if we mutually follow each other there is a 350% chance i’ve started to type a really enthusiastic message into your ask box about how awesome you are but deleted it because it sounded creepy when i read it over for the 832nd time

And to your left you’ll see the Sherlock fandom having a meltdown

tagging your hate is like going to a pasta convention and screaming that you don’t like pasta. you can sit there and argue, “but it’s not a pasta lover’s convention and it did have to do with pasta!” but how many people go to a pasta convention that don’t like pasta?
