New Kardashian Websites Exposed To Hackers
Ever since the Kardashian Klan rolled out their new websites and apps earlier this week, we’ve been obsessed with all the new Kontent from Kylie, Kendall, Khloe, and Kim. But if you’ve already signed up to be a member on the site, we have some bad news for you: They’ve been hacked.
According to Gizmodo, a teenage developer named Alaxic Smith found a way into the backend of the sites, exposing nearly 900,000 users — along with their full names and email addresses. Scary that such a big hole left so many Kardashian fans vulnerable, right? Alaxic posted an explanation of his findings on Medium, but his findings have since been deleted.
The good news: The sites have been pretty successful if almost one million people are already signed up to get the latest on their favorite member of the Kardashian/Jenner family. The bad news? It’s scary that kind of info was so easily hacked into, especially since users have to sign up with their credit card info!
If you’re already part of the site or are planning to join in the future, don’t worry — the company behind the sites, Whalerock Digital Media, says it’s now totally safe to trust their security again. Feel free to indulge in all the behind-the-scenes Kardashian goodness they’ve given us to your heart’s content!
What a relief. We were worried we’d never get the latest on North West’s style again, but now? Sounds like it’s a go for photos of our favorite celeb baby!
