Pinterest, like any other platform on the internet, is vulnerable to hackers. But what does a Pinterest security breach look like? According to TechCrunch, recent hacks have taken the form of lots and lots of butts replacing the pretty pictures you pinned to your dream wedding board.

Hackers can gain access to Pinterest accounts through many avenues, they report, including "third-party apps with security holes" and "Pin This" widgets with malicious code. So far, Pinterest has not issued comment on the hack.
