jbov (2202938) writes "Kickstarter members received an e-mail at about 16:40 EST notifying them of a security breach. According to the e-mail, information including user names, encrypted passwords, mailing addresses, and phone numbers may have been revealed. Kickstarter members were urged to change their passwords.

Kickstarter has claimed that credit card information was not accessed during the breach.

According to Kickstarter, law enforcement officials contacted Kickstarter on Wednesday night and alerted the company that "hackers had sought and gained unauthorized access to some of our customers' data.". Upon learning of the breach, Kickstarter claims to have closed the security breach and began taking strengthened security measures."
