    Re: Re: Cloudflare Certificates

    I agree that it is disappointing to see this here on Techdirt without noting that there are completely benign technical reasons for this to happen. Especially so when this very site shares the same infrastructure, which "raises some questions about just who he has hired to build his websites".

    I think the post should be edited to include an update clarifying that this is an implementation detail of a 3rd party provider and that this in no way impacts the security of the donation site (or this site).

    Cloudflare Certificates

    From the image, you can see that the certificate is issued to CloudFlare. This is the way that CloudFlare has set up their infrastructure so that they don't need a unique public IPv4 address for every single one of their customers.

    Techdirt also site behind Cloudflare and has more than a dozen alternate names to various website hidden within the SSL certificate.

    In my opinion, there is no security issue here. Just an unfortunate, yet amusing coincidence that Cloudflare paired these 2 domains together.
