2 + 2 Forum Hacked

Online Poker Site Review » Poker News » 2 + 2 Forum Hacked


 

If you are a member of the wildly popular 2+2 poker forum, you need to take notice. The forum way hacked, and it is believed that the information was compromised.

Dear Two Plus Two 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.  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.

Best,
Two Plus Two Interactive

This is not a situation to take lightly. If you use the same password at any other entity it is a necessity to change them. I would advise it is a good time to have different passwords for every account you have online.
