Today Cloudflare, one of our infrastructure providers, revealed that they were subject to a security vulnerability which may have resulted in some private IRCCloud data, including passwords and chat history, being leaked between September 2016 and February 2017.

No payment details were affected.

We understand the chances of any information being compromised are very low, but we take these issues very seriously indeed. We are immediately requiring all users to re-authenticate when they next load IRCCloud. We’re sorry for the inconvenience this will cause.

We recommend that all IRCCloud users change their account passwords, and we are reviewing our security in light of this issue.
