This Week in Net: Bug bounties, attacks on health organizations and Groundhog Day

Presented by João Tomé, John Graham-Cumming, Rita Kozlov
Originally aired on 

Welcome to our weekly review of stories from our blog and other elsewhere, covering a range of topics from product announcements, tools and features to disruptions on the Internet. João Tomé is joined by our CTO, John Graham-Cumming.

In this week's program, we discuss our bug bounty program that led to Cloudflare's handling of a bug in interpreting IPv4-mapped IPv6 addresses. We go over the uptick in targeted DDoS attacks on healthcare organizations and ways to stay protected. We include topics like the traffic control bug CVE-2022-47929, and new features such as Advanced HTTP Alerts and the ability (for administrators) to manage dedicated egress IPs with Cloudflare Zero Trust.

There’s some talk about North America’s Groundhog Day (including references to the 1993 Bill Murray movie and also current Internet trends).

Lastly, Rita Kozlov gives us a brief guide on what to expect from the Cloudflare Workers platform in 2023.
