Tumblr security lapse - iPhone and iPad users update your passwords now! | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

Tumblr has released a "very important" update for their iPad and iPhone apps following what they describe as a "security lapse".

 

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.

It is always a good idea to update passwords: too many people out there with nothing better to do than mess with other peoples' lives!

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.

We’ve been thinking here at Scoop.it about the mobile and social revolutions and how we can help make the curation process a seamless part of your day. We think that the most interesting reading and content consumption happens during the “in between” moments these days — on the bus, during breakfast, etc — instead of during typical 9 to 5 hours, which has been the case historically.

 

Instapaper recently released a study of reading data collected for over 100 million articles, which shows the majority of mobile content being consumed has actually shifted to between 6 pm and 9 pm.
