TwoPlusTwo.com Poker Posting Forum Hacked:  Passwords Were at Risk

The uber posting forum for the poker playing community, TwoPlusTwo.com, was hacked into early this afternoon at just before 2:30 pm EST.  TwoPlusTwo.com had to shut the forum down after realizing the hacker in question had the ability to obtain account passwords.

The site released a statement to all posters and displayed the same message on the forum entry page:

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.

We hope to be back up as soon as possible.

TwoPlusTwo.com is the undisputed king of all poker posting forums and the “go-to” for any information pertaining to online poker sector.  It is also one of the oldest websites on the Internet today, first appearing on the Net in the mid-90’s a few years prior to Gambling911.com’s existence.
