Last week it became known that Cloudfire had a bug which exposed some sensitive data and has cutely been called Cloudbleed
Last week we found out about Cloudbleed, a bug on Cloudflare services that resulted in data leakage from a number of websites.
According to Tavis Ormandy, the Google security researcher who discovered Cloudbleed: "I'm finding private messages from major dating sites, full messages from a well-known chat service, online password manager data, frames from adult video sites, hotel bookings. We're talking full HTTPS requests, client IP addresses, full responses, cookies, passwords, [encryption] keys, data, everything."
last night (27/02/2017 GMT/UTC +10) when i was checking out the Playstation Store on my Vita it required me to change my PSN Password. however the Friday before that (24/02/2017) i was connected to the net and i was playing Ratchet and Clank. when i went into my PSN Trophies they synced and there was no requirement for me to change my password then and i've had this password for a couple of years now which makes me think this wasn't some existing password expiry policy.
The reason I suspect a response from Cloudbleed is because the NISA Forums sent me an email requesting i reset my password and their new policy for resetting password every 3 months in response to Cloudbleed.
As you may or may not have heard, Cloudflare recently announced a memory leak caused by a parser bug. Our company forums found at www.nisamerica.com/forum are using a Cloudflare proxy service, and while the chance that any forum users are affected is extremely low, we encourage all registered forum users to reset their password.
We will also be automatically resetting forum user's passwords every 3 months to ensure the safety and security of your personal information.
So i am wondering, did Playstation require password to be reset as a response to Cloudbleed?
