The Tumblr Worm Attack! – Heads Up

 

A heads up to everyone that uses and visits Tumblr, word is spreading of a viral worm attack that is infecting thousands of profiles including those of media tech giants CNET and The Verge. The Safest thing to do right now is only use your dashboards if you need to and don’t go to your Tumblr or anyone else’s for that matter until the issue is sorted.

Also we would probably recommend avoiding using the hashtag created for this warning on twitter as spammers are already onto it and filling people’s feed with … well the shit they fill feeds with. No word yet on when the issue will be resolved.
