It appears that passwords were being sent over the internet unencrypted, making it easy for anyone with bad intentions and a little technical knowledge to harvest Tumblr users' login details.

This article contains information about the  security of the iphone and ipad users. This is very useful, because users wil be secured from any harm that could be done with their gadets. passwords were being sent over the internet unencrypted this could cause alot of problems because hackers would easily be able to access your password.
