    Data breach

    Database storing 3.3 million sanriotown.com accounts found online

    "A database for sanriotown.com, the official online community for Hello Kitty and other Sanrio characters, has been discovered online by researcher Chris Vickery. The database houses 3.3 million accounts and has ties to a number of other Hello Kitty portals.

    Vickery contacted Salted Hash and Databreaches.net about the leaked data Saturday evening.

    The records exposed include first and last names, birthday (encoded, but easily reversible Vickery said), gender, country of origin, email addresses, unsalted MD5 password hashes, password hint questions, their corresponding answers, and other data points that appear to be website related."

    Why weren't emails sent out? This seems like a pretty huge issue, and I'm lucky I found out. I don't come here very often any more. I just happened to see a thumbnail of the front of the site while reading a different news story. Scary!

    "The alleged security breach of the SanrioTown site is currently under investigation," Sanrio said in a statement to the site. "Information will be made available once confirmed."
