Kickstarter, the popular crowd-funding service, has has been hacked. No credit cards were compromised but some user data, including encrypted passwords wee accessed, and they've reset Facebook logins as a precaution. Their CEO, Yancey Strickler, posted on the Kickstarter blog:
While no credit card data was accessed, some information about our customers was. Accessed information included usernames, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and encrypted passwords. Actual passwords were not revealed, however it is possible for a malicious person with enough computing power to guess and crack an encrypted password, particularly a weak or obvious one.
As a precaution, we have reset your Facebook login credentials to secure your account. No further action is necessary on your part.
Kickstarter says the security breach has been closed, and they've apologized and vowed to continue to increase security. They've also posted an FAQ with the answers to some common questions.
