A Manager for the popular poker website twoplustwo reported on Thursday that it had its poker forum hacked, causing the site to shut itself down for a brief period.
A message relayed by the site's management to forum members stated:
"On April 26th at approximately 11:20 AM pacific time, the Two Plus Two Forums were closed as a result of a hacker who has displayed the ability to access e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords. He also indicated the ability to decrypt passwords."
"While it is unclear the extent of data to which he gained access, e-mail addresses and passwords on the Two Plus Two forums should be considered compromised. If you have used your 2+2 password on any other site, you are advised to change it."
"For your security we are closing the forums until the breach is patched."
