Kickstarter Compromised: Info Hacked

If you're on Kickstarter, you should probably be busy changing up your passwords.  From CNET:
Hackers hit crowd-funding site Kickstarter and made off with user information,
the site said Saturday.  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.
"Actual passwords were not revealed, however it is possible for a malicious person with enough computing power to guess and crack an encrypted password, particularly a weak or obvious one," the site said in a blog post, adding that "as a precaution, we strongly recommend that you create a new password for your Kickstarter account, and other accounts where you use this password."
