Two Plus Two Poker Posting Forum Back Online Following Hack

Two Plus Two Poker Posting Forum Back Online Following Hack | This Week in Gambling - Poker News | Scoop.it
The popular Two Plus Two posting forum returned this weekend after a hacker managed to encrypt user passwords last month.


The world’s largest poker message board has been down for nearly three weeks. One of the issues encountered by long time members of the site is an inability to gain access using prior posting handles.

The question:


A few of my friends (GTBMuckface and BitchiBee specifically), and I'm sure MANY others, don't know or don't have the email address that they signed up with. I'm making this thread in an attempt to alleviate the millions of threads, even though they'll probably still pop up. Is there anything they can do, or are they SOL?

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

TwoPlusTwo.com Poker Posting Forum Hacked: Passwords Were at Risk | This Week in Gambling - Poker News | Scoop.it
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.
