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.
What’s Heartbleed? It means you’ll probably want to change your passwords asap… or maybe in a few days… this link explains it better:

Probably the best and most unexpected quote from the office. You wouldn’t expect something so deep from Andy and yet it fits his character perfectly
Reminds me of some sage advice from Bruce Dickinson…
Don’t waste your time always searching for those wasted years,
Face up… make your stand,
And realise you’re living in the golden years.
Tonight we launch our highly anticipated new 7” vinyl “For A Few Riffs More" with a massive party at The Tote.
We’re kicking off with a free BBQ at 8pm, then our friends Swidgen, Borrachero and Kaleidoscope will hit the stage before Riff Fist fire up. DJs Hand of Doom and Pilot the Dune will be filling the gaps with some awesome fuzz rock, stoner rock and doom metal tunes… it’s the vinyl party of the year!
See you tonight folks.
We just released our debut EP “Fistful of Riffs” on soundcloud for those in need of some big riffs on your New Year’s Eve party playlist. Enjoy!
Party playlist sorted.
