As It Stands blog: A new Cheney in the senate? Are you Linkedin? Change Tumblr passwords ASAP!

Good Day World!

It’s Thursday. Pot Luck Day at As It Stands. I’ve cobbled together a few items for you to chew on. Nothing too heavy. Just a few slices of life:   

Dick Cheney (aka Darth Varder) has a Daughter, Liz, who is Running for a Senate Seat in Colorado

Liz Cheney launched her campaign for Senate on Wednesday by calling the 69-year-old Republican senator she's looking to unseat "confused." Daddy told her to say that.

Cheney made official her Republican primary challenge in Wyoming to veteran Sen. Mike Enzi on Wednesday, calling for a "new generation"(read evil empire)of conservative leaders in Washington.

The only question now is Darth Vader’s evil empire about to expand? Liz Vader…has a ring to it, don’t you think?

Tumblr

Warning! Warning!

Use Tumblr's iPhone or iPad apps? Change your passwords now!

After discovering an issue which could allow passwords to be compromised, Tumblr has released what it describes as a "very important security update" for its iPhone and iPad apps and asked users to change their passwords.

It seems that, under certain circumstances, the prior versions of the iPhone and iPad apps would allow an individual with malicious intent to "sniff" — or intercept — passwords as they are in transit across a local network.

The latest update — version 3.4.1 — fixes this issue, but Tumblr asks that those who've used prior versions of the apps should update their passwords on Tumblr and anywhere else they may have used the same password.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
