Cloudflare databreach

Cloudflare has revealed that it was the target of a likely nation-state attack in which the threat actor leveraged stolen credentials to gain unauthorized access to its Atlassian server and ultimately access some documentation and a limited amount of source code.

The intrusion, which took place between November 14 and 24, 2023, and detected on November 23, was carried out “with the goal of obtaining persistent and widespread access to Cloudflare’s global network,” the web infrastructure company said, describing the actor as “sophisticated” and one who “operated in a thoughtful and methodical manner.”

As a precautionary measure, the company further said it rotated more than 5,000 production credentials, physically segmented test and staging systems, carried out forensic triages on 4,893 systems, reimaged and rebooted every machine across its global network.
