Tumblr iOS Security Flaw: Change Your Password Now


Another day, another web service with lax security. This time it’s Tumblr, which has urged users of its iOS apps to change their passwords after it emerged that those apps didn’t transmit passwords securely, making it using for the criminally-minded to ‘sniff’ them.

Changing your password is especially important if you use the same password elsewhere, although that in itself is a massive security no-no. If you only access Tumblr via your desktop browser, this particular issue won’t affect you.
