    2 + 2 Accounts Compromised

    I received this email last night, so most of you who are members probably received it as well, but for those who do not check their email regularly and who might be using the same passwords for every site this could be important (I know that sounds like a really stupid thing to do, but I used to)

    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

    That's not worth a damn! I'm not a member there so that's a plus, but I am guilty of using the same passwords for my accounts. I guess I know what I need to do about that

    1. Never tell everything you know.

    Another thing to keep in mind, I used to have good passwords for pokersites, but an incredibly simple one for my email as I figured if someone wants to read my viagra spam have at it, until someone pointed out to me that the email should be the toughest one because if someone cracks that, they can easily click forgot password on the sites and change it to whatever they want and your funds are now gone.
    I have corrected that problem

    Not sure what was to gain with the hacking a forum site. If you can tie e-mails to passwords to pokersites. Guess an encrypted password isn't worth much.

    There are high stakes stakers and lots of high stakes trades on 2p2. Basically there are some that can call out big $$$ amounts by name and rep on 2p2 alone. I'm not talking 1000's here. I'm talking 10000's here. So, it's a very big deal. Forums accounts can be very costly.

    So there hoping to get enough information from a forum to hack a poker account. Makes sense, you now have an e-mail address then to try hack the poker account. Time for a new password then.
