More about the Cloudflare issue:
Google's Project Zero team have uncovered a critical bug in Cloudflare which allowed sensitive data like passwords, cookies and encryption keys from many hosted websites to leak online.
4chan, Yelp, Zendesk andUber are among the most important affected websites. The breach is known on the web as Cloudbleed.
The bug, which was discovered last week and is now reported to be fixed, has caused the most damage between February 13 and February 18, according to Cloudflare, when about one in every 3,300,000 HTTP requests caused data to leak.
Information that was leaked included encryption keys, cookies, passwords, chunks of POST data and even HTTPS requests for other major cloudflare-hosted sites from other users.
Cloudflare has provided a through incident report on its blog, which explains in depth what caused the bug and how it was fixed.
Cloudflare has a significant number of customers, so the list of affected websites (and apps) is quite substantial. It should be noted that not all websites that use Cloudflare are affected by cloudbleed.
