The bug has affected many popular websites and services — ones you might use every day, like Gmail and Facebook — and could have quietly exposed your sensitive account information (such as passwords and credit card numbers) over the past two years. To see what sites that could be affected, check out the following:

Election of directors of the 501(c)(3) entity:

The 501(c)(3) does not have members.  The initial directors are listed in the By-laws as Art Eisenson, Ron Friedman, Judith Parker, Dan Wilcox and Steve Chivers.  At the initial organizational meeting of the Board, the initial directors may elect directors, who will hold office for two years (and until a successor has been designated and qualified).  At the end of the term and in the event of the resignation or death of a director, the directors then in office will elect, by a majority vote, successor directors.  (See the Bylaws, § 3.4, § 4.2, § 4.5, § 4.6; California Corporations Code (Nonprofit Corporation Law), § 5310, § 5220.)

Please note that TV Writers Fund for the Future Inc. is a non-profit public benefit corporation. It is a separate legal entity from QSF II and does not form part of the settlement.
