Man, I’m seeing a lot of tumblrs getting caught in phishing scams, NEVER TYPE YOUR PASSWORD INTO A POP-UP WARNING ABOUT ADULT CONTENT. OR A FAKE-ASS STARBUCKS CONTEST. The pop-up actually blocks you from viewing someones tumblr unless you give your login details, which makes it difficult to alert the victim, you should be able to warn them via fan mail if you’re following them, not 100% sure.
~ What to do if your account is a victim ~
If your blog is posting spam or your themed blog shows the fake login screen, you can fix it!
- First things first, change your password! When you do so, make sure the page you are on is a secure Tumblr page (how to recognize one)
- Second, if your blog has the fake login screen, you need to reset your blog’s theme!
- If that isn’t possible, you can go in and remove the offending code. It is a couple of lines near the bottom of your theme code that start and end with
<script> tags and has a bunch of code with seemingly random numbers and letters
