    Serious Cloudflare bug revealed secret user data from major websites


    For months, a bug in Cloudflare’s content optimization systems exposed sensitive information sent by users to websites that use the company’s content delivery network. The data included passwords, session cookies, authentication tokens and even private messages.
    “Cloudflare is behind many of the largest consumer web services (Uber, Fitbit, OKCupid, …), so rather than trying to identify which services are on Cloudflare, it’s probably most prudent to use this as an opportunity to rotate ALL passwords on all of your sites,” security researcher Ryan Lackey said in a blog post.

    For me that has only one meaning : The World is being more insecure, more aggressive to people. And that all because there are some aggressive maniacs behind the courtines playing as if the World is a place of full of Foul People.
