Dearest Tumblr users - Tumblr Hacked by GNAA

Tumblr Hacked

Dearest 'Tumblr' users,  We have taken the liberty of upgrading your (rather tasteless, we must say) blog to our premier GNAA Deluxe Gary Niger (pictured to the left) Signed Edition! This is in response to the seemingly pandemic growth and world-wide propagation of the most FUCKING WORTHLESS, CONTRIVED, BOURGEOISIE, SELF-CONGRATULATING AND DECADENT BULLSHIT THE INTERNET EVER HAD THE MISFORTUNE OF FACILITATING. However, we do not believe you are beyond redemption! All you have to do is DRINK BLEACH AND DIE YOU EMO, SELF-INSISTING, SELF DEPRECATING, SELF-INDULGENT EMPTY HUSKS OF HUMAN BEINGS. REPEAT AFTER ME: I WISH I WAS PROFOUND, BUT I'M NOT! I WISH I WAS ORIGINAL, BUT I'M NOT! I WISH MY IMPENDING DEATH WAS OF ANY CONSEQUENCE, BUT IT IS MOST CERTAINLY NOT! Your last chance for redemption hinges upon your death; your death which was most fortunately prescribed by your most unfortunate birth. Fret not, dear emo, your death will be regarded as a sacrifice to humanity; to die a martyr is a glorious death, and will likely be your highest contribution to society.  SHOUTZ: LITERALKA - DOLPHIN/DZL - BERRY/BRR - RORY - INFID3L - INCOG  P.S. Attempting to delete these posts will delete your tumblr account ;] But, by all means, go ahead!Tumblr accounts are currently under attack and are being shut down. If you click on the wrong post, yours will go down too.

The exploit spreading on Tumblr was developed by the anti-blogging hacker group GNAA (Gay N***** Association of America). Many of the more popular blogs have also fallen prey to the worm such as USA Today, CNET and the Daily Dot. The Dashboard of millions of users is currently being flooded with the following unflattering message:

**We’ve taken the liberty of editing some of the offensive text of the original message 


DO NOT CLICK IF YOU SEE THE ABOVE POST, AND DO NOT TWEET A LINK TO IT as you’ll get infected too if you signed in to Tumblr.

It has been reported that 8,600 Tumblr users have been infected and counting.

What to do if you’ve been infected

Don’t worry, there’s a quick fix. All you’ll have to do is go to the Tumblr mass editor, delete the post and refresh. You should also change your password for security.

A developer has suggested that the exploit uses a"data-uri script tag" in the video embed field.

So it runs a script through the section of the site that's supposed to only allow video embed codes from sites like YouTube and Vimeo.

Dearest Tumblr usersTumblr has taken to twitter to report that they are working on resolving the issue "as swiftly as possible".
