Urgent security update

staff:

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

polanskis:

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

When a fandom thing comes out

  • Anything else on the internet: *2 weeks after release* Hey have you seen the thing?
  • Tumblr: *2 hours after release* We have gifed the thing, vidded the thing, speculated about the thing, named the thing, cried about the thing.

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?

  • downside to tumblr's new 'activity' feature: people are going to know i stalk them
