A hack of the popular crowdfunding platform may be worse than Patreon itself has let on.

Crowdfunding site Patreon has become the latest victim of a data breach, though this one’s slightly more interesting than your garden variety hack.Patreon acknowledged the breach on September 30, saying that hackers gained access to names, email addresses, posts, and some shipping addresses, along with some billing addresses that added prior to 2014. The site also reported unauthorized access to encrypted passwords, social security numbers, and tax form information. Credit card data wasn’t compromised in the breach.
