LivingSocial recently experienced a cyber-attack on our computer systems that resulted in unauthorized access to some customer data from our servers. We are actively working with law enforcement to investigate this issue.
The information accessed includes names, email addresses, date of birth for some users, and encrypted passwords — technically ‘hashed’ and ‘salted’ passwords. We never store passwords in plain text.
Two things you should know:
- The database that stores customer credit card information was not affected or accessed.
- If you connect to LivingSocial using Facebook Connect, your Facebook credentials were not compromised.
You do not need to take any action at this time, but we wanted to be sure you were fully informed of what happened.
The security of your information is our priority. We always strive to ensure the security of our customer information, and we are redoubling efforts to prevent any issues in the future.
Please note that LivingSocial will never ask you directly for personal or account information in an email. We will always direct you to the LivingSocial website – and require you to login – before making any changes to your account. Please disregard any emails claiming to be from LivingSocial that request such information or direct you to a website that asks for such information.
If you have additional questions about this process, the “Create New Password” button on LivingSocial.com will direct you to a page that has instructions on creating a new password and answers to frequently asked questions.
We are sorry this incident occurred, and we look forward to continuing to introduce you to new and exciting things to do in your community.

FOR IMMEDIATE Release
A nonprofit group in Houston, TX known for helping single mothers has begun an ambitious new effort to help an entire neighborhood, and ultimately, the entire nation.
Houston – April 25, 2013 – The Armed Citizen Project is dedicated to empowering citizens and deterring crime by providing free training and defensive pump-action shotguns to residents of mid-high crime neighborhoods. They have been using existing crime data, and have been working with citizens in the community to determine the neighborhoods that they will be training and arming. On Sunday, May 5th, they will begin to train and arm their first neighborhood in Houston, and will soon begin arming residents in other U.S cities. The Armed Citizen Project will be in at least 15 cities by the end of the year, and has the goal of providing training and weapons to over 1,000 households in their inaugural year.
They have chosen a neighborhood in Northwest Houston as their first neighborhood to arm. The neighborhood lies within the 77092 zip code, near 610/290/T.C. Jester Park. The rise in crime over the last several years has negatively impacted the lives of the residents, and home values in the area. The area was recommended by citizens and members of law enforcement, and the data validates that this area would benefit from the program.
In his final semester of the Masters of Public Administration program at the University of Houston, Kyle has a love of policy analysis, and has always been interested in the relationship between how criminals perceive levels of risk and crime rates. “It is our hypothesis that criminals have no intention of dying in your hallway, and we believe that society should use that fear to deter crime.”
The Armed Citizen Project is dedicated to facilitating the arming of law abiding citizens, and analyzing the relationship between increased firearm availability and crime rates. They are choosing mid-high crime neighborhoods in cities across America, and offering defensive weapons to homeowners that can pass a background check and will participate in safety, legal, and tactical training. The data collected will be used in the completion of a policy study that will measure the deterrent effects of firearms on crime. While a multi-year/multi-city will be conducted, the organization is first and foremost a charitable nonprofit, motivated by the desire to help fellow citizens. They have been training and arming single women/mothers and the elderly, and are now ready to arm entire neighborhoods.
Once an appropriate number of homeowners are armed, they intend to place signs in the neighborhood warning criminals of the increased risk that exists to those that illegally enter a home. Homeowners that choose not to participate in the program may potentially benefit, as the criminal will not know which homes are armed. By tracking and analyzing the crime data, ACP hopes to determine if a correlation or causal link exists between the increased risk of deadly force and the reduction of home invasion crimes.
The Armed Citizen Project is funded through private donations made through their website, www.armedcitizenproject.org, and will also accept contributions of firearms.
We are empowering citizens and deterring crime, one free shotgun at a time.
Whine California Whine as the ACLU sues Calif. educators to improve English language education for 20,000 students. Having what you want, and wanting what you have, has brought ugly chickens home to roost on broken eggs.
Aha! The time is nigh to
Eliminate Bi-Lingual Hiring
Demand English as the National Language
Ban Bi-Lingual Products on Store Shelves
Cancel Welfare for any Non-English Speaking
Seal the Borders
These are just a few examples of the numerous demonic democratic crutches that the linguistically handicapped have endured, and, what isolates them from the American Main Stream. No Free Passes to Freedom, Earn It!
Sounds really great, right, a bit of extra fun and help for your children with mathematics?
Meet one of the many tentacled forms of ‘educational’ teams that stunts your child’s education and logic ability!
Is this the very best endorsement this program could put forward? If so, what does this say about the current condition of our educational system?
Go through the site, the agenda is revealed… Common Core Galore!
Timing is so very telling!
Overt mistakes were made over and over, so sloppy… that it could never have been by accident.
Did law enforcement stand in for drones within the USA? Same results, no trials, and a registered kill!
There’s a behind your back… story here, and the bogus administration’s unqualified position holders have displayed their utter lack of any ability to effectively manage the affairs of our great nation.
Now, all I see is a bunch of Washington DC bastardcrats ( yes, they are on both sides of the aisle), rubbing their grubby little hands together, anticipating the cash cow payoff opportunities that new bills will supply!
Why did an entire city have to go on lockdown while a 1-armed and injured 19 year old supposedly hunkered down?
If I have to paint a picture, then you’re just not paying attention because Watertown Massachusetts became the official ‘1st police state‘ city in the USA!
What truly defines a False Flag via Wikipedia (not my favorite source but exact at this moment in time)
No one is buying into this BS job that the bogus administration is pushing… look at FAA involvement, as early as one month before, by the following screen captures…
WHY was/is the Federal Aviation Administration posting Boston Marathon information?
Pertinent questions and observations and coincidences –
1) Why did no ambulances reach the ‘scene of the blast’ but gurneys and wheelchairs flowed back and forth? Was this for overly dramatic effect?
2) Why did the injured woman/caring man from the trauma tent get connected via a police press conference request? What if he was the crazy assessing his work? Why did later reports remove the reference to him showing her his own scars? Why did one news network establish that he was ‘not former military’ prior to chopped clip bits of the full interview?
3) Why was there a false scare at the Boston courthouse? Why do you suppose so many media reports were inconsistent? Script problems? Stalling to regroup?
4) Why had FBI press conference after press conference been halted, day after day? Was this so Obama could spin control the masses and play Padre Obama from the pulpit today?
6) Why did law enforcement put out an immediate verbal call to hit social media amidst this event?
7) What is going on with the person, who’s obviously behind the blue tarp, crouched on the scissor lift?
Below are two different reports that prove that you need to pay attention to an engineered effect, more than likely through this usurped government with paid mercenaries, black-ops, or paramilitary, staged for outrage!
Why, when this event had so many cameras, would any law enforcement request any footage that has already gone viral from attendees? They can’t fix them all, yet, now… they want to denounce all other images. I call Bull $hit when I see it!
The current administration Can Not multi-task…
What is going on with this? Is this a liberal tooling of America while everyone is distracted by Boston? Today, in no particular order and without corresponding details, some form of school lockdown today

Coincidence, Unlikely… and this in not all-inclusive… for TODAY!
Mentions of gun carrying passersby, robberies, police pursuits, gunshots, mysterious people… looks like the liberals were looking for an opportunity, while the nation is distracted, to terrorize children in schools with each and every lockdown. These same children will go home and inform their parents of these lockdown events. The parents will then become fearful of possible school intruders and guns. Win for the Liberal BS Spin!
I see staged for rage!
