Tumblr Updates iOS App with Security Fix

After being acquired by Yahoo, Tumblr issues its first update for iOS app last week. But today, the company issued again a new version 3.4.1 with "very important security update" for its iOS users. This update fixes an important security issue in the app that allows the exposure of password information in some ways.

But famous blogging website has now resolved this issue requests all of its users to "Please download the update now." The company also asks users to reset their passwords for Tumblr iOS app and other apps where they used same password, to avoid any inconvenience. The company also advised its users not to use same passwords for different apps.

The company also feels sorry for this security vulnerability. Tumblr states, "Please know that we take your security very seriously and are tremendously sorry for this lapse and inconvenience."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
