Cloudflare Announces Possible Breach of User Credentials

Make sure you change duplicate passwords immediately!

On Thursday of last week, website security provider Cloudflare announced a major security vulnerability affecting their service. This vulnerability has caused sensitive user data to be exposed across a number of popular websites, like Yelp, Uber, and others.

To protect yourself, make sure you are not reusing any passwords on multiple accounts. If you are reusing passwords, we suggest changing them to unique passwords immediately. People often get into trouble when a breach compromises one of their passwords, and they also use that password for their bank account, credit cards, or other sensitive logins.

We know it’s tough to make sure every single password is unique, so we recommend using a tool like LastPass. To learn more about LastPass, check out this article and One-Minute Wednesday video on our favorite password manager. You can also watch the video below:
