Change your passwords, major issue with cloudflare security "oops"

It looks like a major Internet content server (cloudflare) messed up their code and pretty much leaked a bunch of data that was supposed to be encrypted. This includes any usernames/passwords/emails for websites they host. This information was searchable and archivable by anyone (and was cached by default by google/bing/etc).

This is less of an issue if you use different passwords for every site, but I know I don't do that.....

So I'd recommend changing pretty much all your Internet account passwords, enable 2FA if you can, etc...

    Don't rely on lists to determine what passwords you should change. Unless you know for a fact that the site doesn't use Cloudflare, just change your password (and add 2 factor auth, if it's available.... I know I've been beating that dead horse for years)
