The Internet Infrastructure company Cloudflare, which provides a variety of performance and security services to millions of websites, revealed late Thursday that a bug had caused it to randomly leak potentially sensitive customer data across the internet.
Cloudflare, Inc. is not a household name. You may never have heard of the company but chances are you have used Cloudflare’s services many times. Many web-based companies use Cloudflare’s services to improve their own delivery of information to their customers. Cloudflare’s network has the highest number of connections to Internet exchange points of any network worldwide.
The bottom line is this: Your personal information may have been compromised. Details are available at: https://www.wired.com/2017/02/crazy-cloudflare-bug-jeopardized-millions-sites and at: http://gizmodo.com/everything-you-need-to-know-about-cloudbleed-the-lates-1792710616.
