Kickstarter accounts hacked, password reset suggested

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Kickstarter accounts were hacked Wednesday night, the crowdfunding service website has announced. While Kickstarter claims no credit card data was accessed and that only two accounts had unauthorized activity, management (and good sense) suggests you change your passwords as soon as possible.

"We're incredibly sorry that this happened," Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler wrote regarding the matter. "We set a very high bar for how we serve our community, and this incident is frustrating and upsetting. We have since improved our security procedures and systems in numerous ways, and we will continue to do so in the weeks and months to come. We are working closely with law enforcement, and we are doing everything in our power to prevent this from happening again."

It should go without saying, but those of you who use your Kickstarter password elsewhere will want to be extra quick on the draw.
