      So guys... I don't know if you are aware of the recent incidents regarding password security all over the world. A few weeks ago I read in The New York Times that a company that holds the majority of the RSA tokens worldwide has had it's servers hacked, then Sony with the Playstation thing. These were the ones that I know of.

      Yesterday I received the following email from a service I use:

      Well, I did not hold any worthy passwords there anyway. Just changed my login and deleted the most important passwords I had there....

      And then just a few hours ago I received this one:

      I don't know guys... But I'm sure there is something big going on in the world right now. So as a public service for the fellows in this forum, I'd recommend two things:

      1. Change ALL your passwords on poker rooms and on your PokerStrategy.com ID;

      2. For the PokerStrategy IT team: I think you hold some important information out there, so stay sharp... you never know whether people would be interested in hacking PS. If I were you, I'd send an email to all PS member requesting them to change their passwords and requiring the new passwords to have at least one number and some special character like @, #, % or &.

      Also, if you use Internet Banking I'd recommend you to make changes on your IDs there too.

      Peace.

      Don't just change your passwords. Start using Keepass so that you aren't using the same simple password on every website on the internet.

      Oh and I've been reading up a bit on those "gambler" spam mails on 2+2 and apparently not only CR members are getting those so hackers prob got access to some other poker site that has our emails too so if you have same pasw everywhere or so it'd be a good time to change it. Not that it's likely they decrypted pasws from hacked site or w/e but better be safe than sorry.
