Has Tumblr been compromised?

The flood of gym posts redirect to a spammy link. And then the ass post is being reposted to infinity.

May I suggest folks change their passwords as a preventative measure? It cannot hurt.

Don’t forget that, every time you allow a third party access (like those applications that create a Tumblr cloud or check your followers), they have a copy of your Tumblr password. If those servers are hacked, you are out of luck.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
