In February 2017, Cloudflare was revealed to have been leaking private information including HTTP headers, cookies and POST data in malformed web pages. Some of this data had been cached by search engines. In this talk, Cloudflare's CTO, John Graham-Cumming, will look at the bug itself, the cleanup, its impact and how Cloudflare went about 'Cloud Hardening' its service after Cloudbleed.

As a programmer he has worked in Silicon Valley and New York, the UK, Germany and France. His open source POPFile program won a Jolt Productivity Award in 2004.
