TwoPlusTwo Forum Passwords Hacked

April 27, 2012

Yesterday, the popular TwoPlusTwo online poker forum announced that the site had been hacked and that user passwords had been jeopardized. The forum was shut down in an effort to prevent the hacker from obtaining any passwords and using them in ill will.

The following statement was sent to users and displayed 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 is the most sought after online poker forum when it comes to poker-related news, advice, tips, scandal, and gossip, so it comes as no surprise that this has jolted the poker community into an upset.
