You hit CAPS Lock, didn't you?
Tumblr Scam Running Rampant, Please Help Stop It!

New phishing scam is on the loose in the tumblr community… let’s help stop it.

Malware

I have been seeing a disturbing trend lately involving fraud and phishing scams with people following me and I want everyone else to be vigilant about this. You may ask,

"Why do I need to worry if I never go on their page?"

Because others on your blog do and you’re exposing them to a site which might have fraud on it. I’m not saying you need to go around policing tumblr, but if you see a site where the URL is not tumblr.com or www.tumblr.com, this should send off red flags for you and you should block that follower immediately.

Often what will happen is if a person’s account is compromised, the compromised account will try to mass follow people and when your followers click on the link to your other followers on your blog, the compromised blog will have a piece of code in the tumblr template set in the user blog which will redirect you to sites like this:

Which will then try to trick you into giving your login credentials for them to then compromise your account.

You can block any follower by using the http://www.tumblr.com/block section of tumblr and enter in the URL of the tumblr account that has been compromised, then flag it for SPAM.

A good Tumblr URL will ALWAYS have the word tumblr and .com bumped up right next to each other in the address bar at the top of your browser. If you see something like tumblr.freespace.com or tumblr.host.com or some other derivative of such nature, sound the alarms in your head because these sites CAN NOT be trusted. This goes for a lot of other sites such as Facebook and banking sites in general. If you see the domain name and its TLD (.com,.net.org, etc) together, you’re generally pretty safe.

While this solution will not be a magic bullet, slowing down the spread of malware/phishing scams is important because the more difficult and time consuming it is for the scammers and malware writers to implement a scam or piece of code the less likely they will have incentive to deploy it.

Hey, it's been 6 years since I took one of those kind of pictures. And besides, I didn't have a good friend gently cupping my balls for me in the last one.

I’ll cup your balls for you! :-D LMAO

I wish I could screenshot this….

That’s right bitches! Macs get viruses too! Fuckers!

Ok, my co-workers are having way too much fun in training during the whiteboard session we had earlier today.

A.) Unlike you, traitor, I never went over to the darkside of Sonic. :P

B.) But on a serious note, we only have an Xbox, not the 360, and none of that fancy download business, hence the trouble finding games. :/

Dude… Sonic is on the freakin’ Wii for god sakes. How is there a traitor? O_O Hell, there is even a game with Sonic playing NEXT to Mario! Double-U Tee Eff?

ALRIGHT, DAN.  YOU BETTER GET ONLINE AND WALK ME THROUGH ADDING THIS BAD BOY TO MY LAPTOP, YOU AWESOME SON OF A BITCH, YOU.  :D :D :D
Also, they put the packing receipt in and I can totally see what you meant about the shipping.  You guys, this memory module kit costs $37.99.  The UPS shipping to Guam was TWENTY GODDAM DOLLARS.  I guess it’s worth it, though, as he JUST told me he was sending me a surprise on Tuesday, and it got here on Friday.  USPS is cheaper, but slow and completely unreliable here.

Damn straight dude. This will make your life so much better. Please be super careful not to open until its time to use them.

>:-( Pray my ass…

Ok, I really angers me when people say, “Pray for those in [insert disaster].” This girl I really like just had the nerve to utter this nonsense. I know there a lot who will not agree with me on this, but I think this is an insanely offensive thing to say. If God was so loving, you’d think he’d just not allow the disaster to happen. Praying won’t do shit except point out that, if there is a god, it hates humans.

People that are important to me might be in danger and people who say this belittle my concern.

It was a response to this picture that was circulating around Tumblr, not just a general RAH RAH RAH rant. It had a picture of a black woman and an Asian woman side by side, and basically went down the list as to why black women are disgusting, and why Asian women are perfect. Typical creepy otaku shit, fetishing Asians (which are all the same, of course *eyeroll)...Asian women are submissive, thin, ladylike, have tiny, amazing vaginas, like to do appropriate things (like listen to Ayumi and have fancy dinners), whereas black women are muscular and manly, crude, have cavernous vaginas, only like to talk Ebonics and have fun by eating Popeye's, smoking weed, and drinking 40s, and more awful stuff. That one particular sentence just made my eyes roll super hard.

I know there's no accounting for taste, but personally, I do think there's something wrong with people who like women with no muscle tone. Seems a little creepy to like 'em weak and soft.

But yeah, that's the context for that...I know it probably seemed like a stretch from that one sentence to have all those tags.

Ok, that makes a hell of a lot more sense. XD Without the context, it made sound like you were being an egotistical bitch. :-p

This isn’t an actual RickRoll but it’s still hilarious.

It was a joke, ass. And besides, you don't know how much I just ditched.

(Hey, if nothing else, it's definitely making my brain computer run faster and less laggy. A lovely purge.)

Oh dude, I know, just trolling. :-( I’m sorry.
