According to a recent post on Cnet, the popular crowdfunding platform Kickstarter was recently hacked…but apparently credit and bank card information was not breached as full card data is not stored on their severs. Otherwise, those might have been snagged too.

Though no credit card information was taken, the site said, attackers made off with usernames, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and encrypted passwords.
