Twoplustwo warns members and temporarily closes forum
A person or persons presently unknown apparently hacked the forums at the informed and popular poker message board twoplustwo this week, causing management to shut forum operations down temporarily.
Management informed members:
"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."
