A REALLY important topic: Cloudflare

Postby silverteen11 » 24 February 2017, 05:19

For everyone that is not informed of the topic, a major vulnerability in the Cloudflare proxying provider used by all sites using Cloudflare left all traffic vulnerable to hacking and leakage, going back for multiple months.

Sites included (the list is just too long to list it here):
https://github.com/pirate/sites-using-cloudflare
Discord and Reddit included.

It is recommended that you change your passwords for those sites immediately.

I must add that Plazma Burst 2 is not affected by this. HOWEVER if you use the same username and password for PB2 on any other site that uses Cloudflare, your information may be at risk.

We advise everybody to regularly change their passwords, and refrain from using the same passwords for different sites.

I have made this post global for the next week.
