    Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.

    We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.

    But this still means that the little lock icon (HTTPS) we all trusted to keep our passwords, personal emails, and credit cards safe, was actually making all that private information accessible to anyone who knew about the exploit.

    This might be a good day to call in sick and take some time to change your passwords everywhere—especially your high-security services like email, file storage, and banking, which may have been compromised by this bug.

    You’ll be hearing more in the news over the coming days. Take care.

    PonyOS 2.0 Released

    It’s not often we here at MLPdaily get the pleasure of truly living up to the name “Pony Flavored Tech News” but the year old pony flavored “PonyOS” is getting a second release with new features. 

    This OS isn’t very exciting and isn’t for every day use. It’s a new vesion of UNIX that doesn’t offer much in new functionality other then built in ponies and an included terminal version of the “2048” game, which is new to PonyOS 2.0.

    It could even be arugued that this OS isn’t meant to be used by day end users at all. After all, It cannot even connect to the internet or use USB drives because of the new nature of their particular kernel. 

    Also new to this version of the OS is the ability to compile apps meant for the platform in the OS it’s self, as well as security enhancements and a modular kernel. 

    Jan Animations no more (via BDR)


    popular Brony animation channel, “Jan Animations” has been treated to all their videos being taken down by Hasbro for copyright infringement. This include the popular “Button’s adventure”

    We will update you on anything new but on his Youtube account, any trace of his My Little Pony Fan Animations are gone.

    As expected Bronies are upset.


    Some may remember the controversy that arose with Jan Animations last year when they animated a rape joke the voice actor for the character Button Mash made. 

    Some have been putting the blame on pinkiepony for this happening, but there has no been absolutely no evidence she’s involved. 

    Update: Vocaroo explanation has been released from Shady Vox 

    Update: Jananimations has stated Hasbro has loosened the leash and has allowed them to keep a portion of his work on his YouTube channel.

    Hasbro has posted a new Rainbow Rocks clip on their YouTube account. It’s rather long and focused entirely on DJ P0N-3 so I’m not sure if this is a clip directly from the film or just a short they produced to promote it. Either way, a very cute little video and well worth the watch if you’re looking forward to the next installment of Equestria Girls.

    New Brony Documentary “A Brony Tale” on the horizon


    A documentary that’s been in production since 2012 helmed by Ashleigh Ball and Brent Hodge is getting ready to premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

    Equestria Daily writes:

    Musician/voice actress Ashleigh Ball, Saberspark, DustyKat, Silva Hound, and many other bronies star in “A Brony Tale”, an upcoming, self-funded documentary film from director Brent Hodge (director of The Cockumentary, and winner of a Canadian Screen Award).
    The film follows Ashleigh Ball’s journey to BronyCon 2012 in New York City, as well as the lives of other bronies. The film also covers Ball’s musician career with her band “Hey Ocean”, and her voice acting career. The film was entirely self-funded by Hodge, and is finishing up editing to be ready for the Tribeca Film Festival in April.
    silvahound had this to say: 
    This documentary feels like a more natural, community-driven perspective of the brony community, whereas the other one focused more on star power and BronyCon itself. So from what I’ve seen, in my opinion it’s more true to the fandom and better to watch.
    Weather it is true to the problematic parts of the My Little Pony fandom remains to be seen, but would certainly contribute to it being “more true to the fandom” instead of simply glossing over or ignoring these problems. 
    finaldraftefn revealed that he was involved with it as well.
    I’m an associate producer on this, and I can say Brent does amazing work. I’ve been waiting with everyone else for it to be finally released publicly, but take my word when I say I think everyone will love it.
