Kickstarter hacked, usernames and password hashes exposed


Recommended Posts

The upshot is that if you've got a Kickstarter account (even if you've never actually funded anything), it's likely that the username and password you use is compromised, unless your password was very strong. Obviously you should change your password at Kickstarter, but probably more importantly you should change it anywhere else you use the same account info (not that anyone would ever do that, right?!?).

If eGullet happens to be one of the places you need to change your password, you can do that at this page.

Right now it doesn't look like any credit card or bank details were exposed, but if that changes I'll post something here.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."


"...in the mid-’90s when the internet was coming...there was a tendency to assume that when all the world’s knowledge comes online, everyone will flock to it. It turns out that if you give everyone access to the Library of Congress, what they do is watch videos on TikTok."  -Neil Stephenson, author, in The Atlantic


"In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual." -Galileo Galilei, physicist and astronomer
