AQW is SAFE from Cloudflare Leak
AQWorlds not affected by CloudFlare security breach
GREAT news from Captain Rhubarb, our lead business programmer / Lore's favorite pie-rate:
You may have heard that ClouldFlare had a major bug this month, between February 13 - 18. Secure data, like web site account passwords, was leaked from some web sites... but NOT from AQ.com! /cheer
Here is part of the official message we received from CloudFlare:
We published a blog post describing a memory leak caused by a serious bug that impacted Cloudflare's systems. https://blog.cloudflare.com/incident-report-on-memory-leak-caused-by-cloudflare-parser-bug/
Your domain (AQ.COM) is NOT one of the domains where we have discovered exposed data in any third party caches. The bug has been patched so it is no longer leaking data.
There is no evidence of any leaked AQW information, but if you are concerned about your own AQW account safety, please consider changing your game account password.
A benefit of updating your password, is that it will be re-encrypted with a higher encryption setting than the default.
