CoudFlare Security Issue – It was just announced that for the past 5 months, in certain cases sensitive data being sent from a Cloudflare customer website to a site visitor has been mixed with data being sent to visitors of completely different websites.
This issue was reported to Cloudflare last Saturday by a Google researcher. They have been working frantically since then to fix it.
