The San Francisco-based company announced the breach in a blog post published early Thursday night. Tumblr notified affected users in an email at approximately 6:35 p.m. PST; Twitter and Pinterest are expected to do so shortly. Zendesk declined to comment beyond its blog post, titled, appropriately, “We’ve been hacked.”

I received a "re-assuring" email from Pinterest about this. My relationship with Pinterest isn't even as a member, but a regular DMCA complainant.
