Kickstarter Hacked

Kickstarter Hacked

Kickstarter Hacked     Popular crowd funding site Kickstarter acknowledged last week that they were hacked and that user information was stolen. CEO Yancey Strickler stated that law enforcement officials contacted Kickstarter to tell them they had been breached. Wait, what? You had to be called and told you were breached, THEN you’re security team responded by closing the holes? Maybe you need a better security team and better monitoring processes if you’re being told from the outside in that you’ve been hacked. You can read the Kickstarter blog post about the incident here.  However it just cannot be over stated how ridiculous the statements made by them really are. Their security team and process should really be considered suspect at this point.
