So, Maybe We Can Have Nice Things?

Kickstarter got hacked.

They weren't storing passwords in plaintext, or using a reversible cypher.
They weren't storing credit card details.

They were using either multiple rounds of salted SHA-1 or bcrypt for passwords, depending on the age of the account.  Both are good options.

So yes, they got hacked, but it's not a clusterfuck like Adobe or Sony, and there's no reason not to keep using the service.  Just change your password first.
