Thousands of Tumblr logins have been compromised after a widespread phishing attack scammed users into handing their information over to an untrustworthy third party. The Huffington Post shares the details, noting that the pages involved are all regular Tumblr users who have previously been compromised. “Once hijacked, their pages are converted into the fake logins and then sent into the world following regular Tumblr accounts. At that point, the phisher hopes those same accounts will visit the fake login, enter their details and keep the cycle going.”
