In wake of uproar, several extremist sites stop using Cloudflare security

2 0 0

Cloudflare, a San Francisco content delivery network rumored to be prepping for a $3.5 billion IPO, is no stranger to controversy over its absolutist free-speech policies–and often embraces the debate.

The latest flashpoint was a December Huffington Post article reporting that the company provides its web-traffic optimization and security protection to seven entities on the U.S. State Department’s list of foreign terrorist organizations–including al-Shabab, the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, and Hamas. U.S. law forbids providing “material support or resources” to these groups.
