Kickstarter says hackers got customer data
Online fundraising site Kickstarter says hackers got some of its customer data.

 

Kickstarter co-founder Yancey Strickler said in a blog post that hackers accessed usernames, email addresses, phone numbers and passwords. The passwords are encrypted, but the company said it's possible for a hacker to guess a weak or obvious password. It recommended that users change their passwords. (AP)
