Blogging site Tumblr issued a security update recently for its iPhone and iPad apps. The update is said to address an issue that enables a user’s password to be compromised in certain circumstances.
The service has Android and Windows Phone apps, but it appears that its iOS version is the only one affected. However, they were unable to explain further what the Tumblr security update is all about, other than it is “very important”.
Due to this, the Tumblr staff advised their users to update their passwords. They even recommended that users change their password in case they are using it on other websites. Tumblr also apologized for the “lapse and inconvenience”.
