Q:I've noticed that recently, if you view the source on any tumblog page, at the top is a line of script that looks like it listens for the fake login and displays something with a warning not to enter login info. I haven't seen it pop up ever, but it looks like they are doing something about the fake login screens.
I hadn’t noticed that, but I do see what you are talking about.
Unfortunately, the Tumblr developer who wrote that code didn’t take into account that the script he/she wrote will not actually run on the fake login box. The box itself is in something called an inline frame or
iframe that loads content from a completely different server.
iframe. As a result, the protection Tumblr attempted to implement has no effect!
Alas, a better solution is needed!
