I have just received news that TSR are targeting Tumblr accounts. 3 sites, rawsimguts ,* ulnargroove. and another un-named site have been hit. It is unusual for 3 Tumblr sites to be hit together in this way. At this stage I do not know if TSR are using passwords from their database or if they have found a vulnerability in tumblr. Please, if you have a Tumblr account, back it up NOW, and never use a password you have ever used on TSR.
I am awaiting news from the site owner ( via ‘Name’ ) to see if her password was the same as on TSR, if she had any takedown notices, if she had any links, downloads or content that may have upset them or any reason at all she may have been targeted. I have no words to express how sorry I am to hear about these sites being attacked or how angered I am at the vulgar use of extreme pornography in a place where children can visit. I will update if/as soon as I find out anything more..
Many thanks to ‘Name’ for the warning, hopefully this early warning may save some sites from attack.
*Update. The rawsimguts hack was unconnected with the other Tumblr hacks, She was hacked by her boyfriends brother. However Tumblr seems to still be very much in the target sights with reports that 2 more Tumblr blogs were attacked in connection with the recent LivingSims hack. One had their password changed and the other, belonging to LivingSims, was deleted completely.
Update on Ulnargroove’s hack.
Here is a message from Ulnargroove..
Many thanks to Ulnargroove and ‘Name’
