3.3 Million Hello Kitty Accounts Exposed In Database Breach (Originally posted by Gizmodo)

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

A database for the Hello Kitty community containing 3.3 million accounts has been discovered online in an apparent breach.

According to CSO Online, researcher Chris Vickery discovered the breach:

The records exposed include first and last names, birthday (encoded, but easily reversible Vickery said), gender, country of origin, email addresses, unsalted SHA-1 password hashes, password hint questions, their corresponding answers, and other data points that appear to be website related.
Information from other Hello Kitty-related websites;;;; and have also been discovered online. Users are advised to change their login credentials, especially if the same information is shared between accounts on other sites.

Most worrisome about this breach is the number of accounts that are likely owned by children.

It’s time to move my blog from sanriotown. I like it here & the other bloggers are great, but while the sanriotown blogs are wordpress based, I just don’t have the flexibility that the real wordpress offers. Also, the security here at sanriotown is quite bad as far as spam goes. (That goes for both email & spam comments) Until that gets remidied, I’ll be taking my blogging elsewhere.

Thanks everyone, &  check out my blog over at

I’m moving some posts over, some will be new, it’s a surprise!

Spam comments

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

Due to the huge influx of disgusting spam comments I’ve been receiving nearly everyday,
I’m putting an approval period on all comments until further notice.

[Various curses to spam robots go here. YOU CAN ALL DIAF!]

I know!

I just found the coolest thing for learning Japanese- it’s called I know!

At “I know” it seems you can learn almost any language,  or enhance one you’re already fluent in.
Here an intro video that kind of shows what they do.

Here’s my user page if you wanna check it out.

I’m just so excited right now, I’ll get a better review up later once I’ve calmed down lol.

Happy Holidays!

    I’m a college grad!

    Sunday, December 14th, 2008

    As of 12/13/2008, I’m a college graduate! I’ve finally finished my Bachelors of Science in Computer Information Systems. Although it took me a year longer than normal, I’m both happy & scared. (I switched schools & majors, it put me behind a semester or two :P) I’m the only one with a bachelors degree on my Dad’s side & the 3rd of my 15+ cousins on my Mom’s side. I’m taking the next few weeks to chil & get my ducks in a row before I start working for good.


    The ceremony was like the one at my community college. We weren’t in any particular order, when we got up to the stage, we handed our card to the speaker & they read our name. Some lady gave us our diploma case & shook our hands. Because of this, I was first one called for my major. One of only 2 girls in the whole department that was graduating. I’m almost always last if they call us alphabetically.  I was stuck sitting next to one of my professors (he talks/acts/looks alot like the Doc from back to the future, hehe) I really wanted to play sudoku on my cell, but I couldn’t given my company :P

    It just weird, I don’t feel like it’s a big deal. When I was a little kid my parents always said “You’ll go to college, you’ll do great, you’ll be successful.” So I’m just doing what I’ve always been told to do, just another step in life. Neither high school or college felt like a huge achievement- but just another thing to check off on my to do list. But it not that I’m not proud of myself, I am. My family & fiends are too.   /shrug

    But yay! Go me!

    New Blog Name & Misc.

    Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

    “Arcsis’s Blog” Just isn’t cutting it for me anymore. Poor thing needs a new name.

    I did learn today that ブログ (burogu) is blog. Good to know!

    So yesterday was my last exam of my college career (My Final final if you will. “The Final Countdown” plays in my head as I think this to myself.) It was my Japanese final, which have good feelings about!

    The Final Countdown - Europe

    Election ‘08

    Friday, October 31st, 2008

    The big `08 election is just around the corner. Yay. I absolutely despise politics, especially now since the candidates have been campaigning for over a year. The worst part is, I barely know where they stand on any of the big issues. All they do is tell you whay not to vote for the other guy. At this moment I haven’t the foggiest on who I’m going to vote for. But I have been doing some homework. has a nifty election tracker following votes as they come in, and it covers all teh various elections going on as well.  Of course, there’s other info there as well, but this caught my eye.

    Who should I vote for Quiz - Not an official tool by any means, but if you have no clue about what any of the candidates think of any of the big issues (health care, Iraq, environment, etc…) this will point you in the right direction. DON’T let this be your only guide on how you vote. THIS is what I’ve been looking for. About mid-page there a section entitled “Where do they stand on the important issues?” It put all their big issues in a big list. I’m thinking this will be far more efficient than the utterly unimformative campaign ads.

    A Google search for election 08 will yield all kinds of good stuff too.

    I want this, but can’t seem to get my paws on it:
