CoveritLive, a popular, Web-based live-blogging program used worldwide, said Friday it has discovered that “certain proprietary data files” of its users “were accessed without authorization,” but that “no financial account information has been compromised. We have not yet determined if, or to what extent, CoveritLive account information (i.e., user names, email addresses and/or passwords) was accessed,” Demand Media, which bought CoveritLive last year, said in an email to its users. Those users include bloggers, journalists and mainstream media organizations, including msnbc.com, Foxnews.com, ESPN and the BBC.
