LivingSocial has been hacked, reports All Things D.

An internal memo to employees said that the company noticed “unauthorised access to some customer data from our servers.”

Just how much data? More than 50 million customer names, email addresses, birth dates, and encrypted passwords.

No credit card or financial info was accessed, though it’d be a smart time to change your password to be safe.
