The bigest poker community based-site, Two Plus Two Poker Forums were hacked during the weekend. Every user is now being forced to change their passwords upon next login.

This is not the first time the 2+2 forums got hacked. Previous, similar incident happened in 2012.

What is really important is that one of the administrators, Chuck Weinstock, released information revealing that the hackers are now trying to sell the database that contains the passwords.

We would advise everyone that had account at 2p2 to make sure the password is not used anywhere else - and if is, change it immediately.

Here is the full information released by the 2p2:
"As it says in the forum notice we learned that the database had been compromised this morning. We cannot find any evidence that accounts created after approximately November 20 have been compromised but as users you should assume that if you've been a member of the forums since before that date that the information necessary to determine your (unchanged) password is out there.

(Although the people "selling" the database claim a December 7 date we believe this to be wrong.)

We have asked all users to reset their password if it hasn't changed in the last 45 days. You will be prompted to do so the next time you login to the forums.

The actions that Max Silver suggests earlier in this post are incredibly important. To recap them:

1) Change your Password on 2+2
2) Change ALL other passwords that are the same or similair
3) Start using unique passwords for every site, these breaches are so common. I'd reccomend a password manager like lastpass
4) enable 2 factor authentication on any vital accounts/emails
5) Take extra precautions to verify identity when trading via 2+2 via separate means"

You should sue 2+2. This is ridiculous
