This is not a drill.

Over the weekend news came to light that Kickstarter, the website which powers a thousand nostalgic gaming dreams, recently suffered a security breach.
While Kickstarter assure us that no credit card information was stolen, they say they cannot rule out the possibility of simple or easy-to-guess passwords being decrypted and thus encourage everyone who has a Kickstarter account to change their password immediately.
“To change your password, log in to your account at Kickstarter.com and look for the banner at the top of the page to create a new, secure password,” says Kickstarter’s email. “We recommend you do the same on other sites where you use this password.”
Every Kickstarter member should have got an email about this by now, but it can’t hurt to spread the word if you know someone who backs a lot of projects.
