So apparently Cloudflare suffered a massive data leak. While the issue causing it has since been patched, it turns out that ANN is among the many sites potentially affected by the leak. Are the staff aware, and what do they plan on doing about it?

I was reading about this but I'm not quite sure I understand. So any site that uses Cloudflare could potentially leak info, but is that only if you actually log into that site? I'm pretty sure ANN is the only Cloudflare using site I have an account with, so I'd only need to change this one password?

I get that other sites I visited might leak the location data and such that gets sent whenever you access a page, but is that all? My network password or anything doesn't gets sent too, right?

CloudFlare said OAuth tokens could have potentially been passed, which (I think) means if you log in with your twitter or facebook, those could have leaked.

Well let's hope that ANN is good at closing their html tags. 100% of the single data point I checked tells me that they always close their tags and this bug didn't affect them.
