Kickstarter Security Breached
Kickstarter got hacked on Wednesday and hackers gained access to some of the users’ data. The site administration says that credit card data should be safe, as the full data is not stored on the site. However, usernames, e-mail addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers and encrypted passwords have been accessed by attackers. Due to that, as a necessary precaution, you MUST CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD on Kickstarter as soon as possible. If you use the same password on any other sites, change those as well, preferably to the unique ones. While the password encryption on Kickstarter uses salt and secure bcrypt and SHA-1 methods there is still a risk, especially for weaker passwords. So change them ASAP.
