Two Plus Two Poker Posting Forum Expected to be Down Two to Four More Days

The popular poker posting forum Two Plus Two became a victim of a serious security breach this past Thursday, forcing a temporary shutdown of the message board.

A statement read as follows: 

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.  Upon reopening the forums you will be forced to change your password – it is counterproductive to do so now.

We hope to be back up as soon as possible.

The site operators, fearing a repeat of the offense, have brought in security experts to study current applications, according to an update appearing on the site. 

Update for April 27th

Given that this happened in spite of having applied all current security patches from the companies that provide our forum software, we are in the process of employing additional security experts to ensure that we are in compliance with the highest security measures possible.

At this point in time we anticipate forum downtime to be within 4-6 days.
