Posted on 13 November 2012.
Popular content delivery network and distributed domain name server service CloudFlare has issued a warning to its users about an ongoing phishing scam:

In order to prevent your account from being locked out we recommend that you change the existing rate plan onto a more powerful one or limit the server load by means of code optimization.

CloudFlare advises anyone who fell for the scheme to immediately use the "forgot password" link on the CloudFlare page to reset their password to a new secure password.
