    Cloudfare is a global and highly used web service that is designed to speed up website loading speeds, protect them from DDoS and other web-based attacks and to provide global networking links. Cloudflare is used by major multinational companies, internet services like Discord, Reddit, Patreon to name a few.

    It has been reported there was a major leak in the cloud server management system which released passwords and personal info for services that use Cloudflare into cache of search engines. Cloudflare has reported that the greatest period of impact was from February 13 and February 18 with around 1 in every 3,300,000 HTTP requests through Cloudflare potentially resulting in memory leakage (that’s about 0.00003% of requests).

    What does this mean for BigD Gaming Community members? Our Website and Discord both use Cloudflare in some form.
    It is highly recommend you immediately reset your password on Discord and the BigD Website.


    Regards,
    BigD Gaming Management
