Sensitive information such as passwords, cookies, and encryption keys have been leaked on the internet due to a security issue at the service provider CloudFlare. Backstop Solutions Group is not a client of CloudFlare, and is not affected by this security issue.
The problem, nicknamed “CloudBleed,” involved CloudFlare’s edge servers “running past the end of a buffer and returning memory that contained private information,” per CloudFlare CTO John Graham-Cumming. After intensive work, CloudFlare has resolved the issue.
