Data breach fatigue is setting in and it’s only February. Kickstarter is the latest high-profile site to be hacked.

Law enforcement authorities informed Kickstarter of the breach on Feb. 12, and Kickstarter immediately closed the vulnerability that allowed the attackers through, Yancey Strickler,¬†Kickstarter’s CEO, wrote on a blog post and in an email sent to users. The company “thoroughly investigated the situation” over the past four days before notifying users, and the team has already begun “strengthening security measures” throughout its infrastructure, Strickler said.
