Digital security always offers us food for thought and debate. So, here are the most important updates of the week:
Cloudflare leaks sensitive user data from millions of websites
Cloudflare, a service that helps optimize the security and performance of more than 5.5 million websites, warned its customers on February 23rd that a recently fixed bug exposed highly sensitive personal data, including passwords, cookies and tokens used to authenticate users.
According to the Cloudflare blog, the bug was serious because the leaked memory could contain private information and because it had been cached by search engines. However, no evidence of malicious exploits of the bug or other reports of its existence were discovered. Get the full story here.
PLEASE NOTE: CyberGhost VPN was in no way affected by this leak.
