Tumblr hacked

December 4, 2012


Tumblr to me is for the younger generation. I use WordPress and I’m sticking to my decision despite the many spam comments I received each day. Recently, the social blogging website Tumblr was hacked by a group called GNAA. Even the official Tumblr blogs of bigger sites like Reuters and USA Today were hacked, posting racist and offensive messages. No mention how many sites and accounts have been hacked exactly but more than 83 million blogs are currently hosted.

There is a viral post circulating on Tumblr which begins ‘Dearest ‘Tumblr’ users.’ If you have viewed this post, please log out of all browsers that may be using Tumblr immediately. Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as swiftly as possible.
