Six months

How long would it take your internet service provider to notify you that a bug on its systems was leaking your data?

“Data Leaked on Web for Months,” The Wall Street Journal, February 25, 2017 B1.  Cloudfare announced it had had a bug since September 2016, affecting its webservers, and leaking data from some of its 6 million customers.  Unclear what was leaked, and to whom.  Cloudfare handles 10% of the world’s web traffic.

Who at Cloudfare knew what, and when, and more importantly, who should have known more, sooner, and disclosed it?
