"There is no evidence that they gained access to accessible credit cards. "There is no evidence of unauthorized activity of any kind in everything but the accounts of two Kickstarter users," the website said.

"While there was no access to credit card information, there may have been information on our customers, such as usernames, email addresses, phone numbers and encrypted passwords. "Passwords have not been revealed, however, it is possible for a malicious person with enough computing power to crack encrypted passwords, especially those that are not strong or obvious enough."

If you are a member of Kickstarter, it is a good idea to change your password immediately. You should also change it to any other page you use it.

"It simply came to our notice then. We set the bar very high on how we can best serve our community, and the fact is quite subversive and frustrating. We have improved the security processes of our systems in many ways, and we will continue to do so in the coming weeks and months. We are working closely with the authorities and are doing everything possible to prevent this from happening again. " added the website.

According to Kickstarter, some passwords were "uniquely salted in conjunction with SHA-1", while others were fragmented with bcrypt, but hackers with enough computing power could decrypt them.
