It seems that images uploaded on the SE sites are hosted on imgur.com. Are these images stored somewhere else too? I mean, is there some sort of backup plan for restoring them? What happens if imgur.com goes bankrupt or something bad happens to it?

We have a backup job, yes. Rebecca wrote a backup program that runs daily IIRC, specifically backing up imgur just in case anything ever happens.

Nice! Think this answer should be edited to reflect this? –  Shadow Wizard Mar 8 '12 at 11:33
    
@ShaDowWizArd - I'll let Rebecca do that, having written it she knows much more about how this works, I pinged her to take a look at this as well (: –  Nick Craver Mar 8 '12 at 11:37
