Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.
But this still means that the little lock icon (HTTPS) we all trusted to keep our passwords, personal emails, and credit cards safe, was actually making all that private information accessible to anyone who knew about the exploit.
This might be a good day to call in sick and take some time to change your passwords everywhere—especially your high-security services like email, file storage, and banking, which may have been compromised by this bug.
You’ll be hearing more in the news over the coming days. Take care.
I don’t get Meld Request often. Usually it’s because I don’t hang out in the cities, else it’s just that I’m doing something else and wasn’t fast enough to reply to the meld request shouts. Today, while walking to get the new dance emote quest in Limsa, I saw a shout for leatherworker lv 50, so I sent a tell.
This total stranger wanted to overmeld a pair of pair of “saurian crakows of casting” with heavens’ eye materia IV, heavens’ eye materia IV and savage aim materia II. (I didn’t know he wanted me to meld 3!)

Ray left her 2 boys with me again, and today I had a lunch appointment with my friend, so I brought them along with Alec Mini.
