Cloudflare's Cloudbleed HTTPS Traffic Leak

Cloudflare has experienced an issue exposing personal information of anyone who may have visited sites using Cloudflare services. Cloudflare services are on some of the biggest sites on the Internet. Sites likely to use Cloudflare are: Gaming, social, porn, and file sharing.

You should change your passwords. Google / Microsoft services do not use Cloudflare.

Between 2016-09-22 - 2017-02-18 passwords, private messages, API keys, and other sensitive data were leaked by Cloudflare to random requesters. Data was cached by search engines, and may have been collected by random adversaries over the past few months.

Requests to sites with the HTML rewrite features enabled triggered a pointer math bug. Once the bug was triggered the response would include data from ANY other Cloudflare proxy customer that happened to be in memory at the time. Meaning a request for a page with one of those features could include data from Uber or one of the many other customers that didn't use those features. So the potential impact is every single one of the sites using Cloudflare's proxy services (including HTTP & HTTPS proxy).

A list of sites on the top 10,000 most trafficed sites. Just because the website you visit is not on that list does not mean it does not use Cloudflare.

A few notable sites

digitalocean.com (no leaked data found in several search engine caches)
curse.com (and some other Curse sites like minecraftforum.net)
namecheap.com (no leaked data found in several search engine caches)
discordapp.com (affected)
glassdoor.com (no leaked data found in several search engine caches)
vultr.com (no leaked data found in several search engine caches)
fastmail.com (not affected, #2)
1password.com (not affected)

OfficeDepot runs tech scam in store

Thinking that going to a major retailer is the best place to have your PC fixed? Seattle station KIRO-TV, tipped off by a whistleblower and bolstered by confirming employees, is accusing Office Depot staffers of doing just that: diagnosing brand-new, just out of the box computers with malware infections that some stores suggested would cost up to $200 to clean up. Office Depot runs a PC health check that is similar to old malware that would popup a message on screen saying you had 5,000 items wrong and needed to pay $XXX to fix them.

Office Depot has shut down all tech services temporarily.

This program is built by Office Depot, they are the only ones who could modify the program to mislead customers and their techs. This is also probably not restricted to just WA and OR, this is the only place where they tested it out before Office Depot shut down all services. Who knows how many years this has been going on.

Chinese company installs backdoor on unknown number of US smartphones

If you own a BLU phone, you should contact them about fixing the problem. It appears only BLU headset in the US are affected, if you have a Huawei or ZTE handset they are also affected.

The AdsUps Malware is transmitting the following:

Collect and Send SMS texts to AdUps' server every 72 hours.
Collect and Send call logs to AdUps' server every 72 hours.
Collect and Send user personally identifiable information (PII) to AdUps' server every 24 hours.
Collect and Send the smartphone's IMSI and IMEI identifiers.
Collect and Send geolocation information.
Collect and Send a list of apps installed on the user's device.
Download and Install apps without the user's consent or knowledge.
Update or Remove apps.
Update the phone's firmware and Re-program the device.
Execute remote commands with elevated privileges on the user's device.

Smartphones should come with no other software installed and we should have the capability to remove anything from our phones that we want. We don't have this power and this is what happens. Don't think this issue will get any better. Smartphones are NOT SECURE. You have ZERO control over what is installed on it by default and cannot remove most preinstalled programs.
