Serious security breach

Recommended Posts

Well if you don't want to click, Google: "Cloudflare parser bug".  TL:DR version:  If you've signed in to any major site since Sep 2016, the chances are you've used one based on CloudFlare and your password could have been leaked.  Any passwords older than 18th February 2017 are potentially affected.  If you use the same password on more than one site, the risk of misuse is higher.

 

And I assume by "don't click on any links", I assume your homepage link in your signature is on the list of links we shouldn't click on? ;)
