DrawQuest closes down after suffering a security breach


DrawQuest, the iPad that lets users channel their creativity through drawing, has been living on its last legs since early this year and now it has closed down with immediate effect after suffering a security breach.

Founder Chris Poole, who also started 4Chan, first announced the closure of DrawQuest in January but there was later optimism that it would be able to continue running for users for “as long as possible,” despite its team all moving to new work. A hack on its Amazon-hosted servers has proved to be the final nail in its coffin, however.

A blog post explains that it is unclear exactly what information was accessed by the hacker, but since its database may have been compromised, the service is closing down to be sure.
