33014517 story Kickstarter Leaves Project Ideas Exposed 56 Posted by Soulskill on Monday May 14, 2012 @01:00PM from the i-just-had-70,000-great-ideas dept. netbuzz writes "Crowd-funding startup Kickstarter is taking a public-relations hit today after it was reported that some 70,000 not-yet-public project ideas were left exposed on the company's Web site for more than two weeks. Kickstarter insists that no financial information was compromised and that only a few dozen of the projects were actually accessed. 'Obviously our users' data is incredibly important to us, the company said in a blog post. 'Even though limited information was made accessible through this bug, it is completely unacceptable.'"
