      I presume you guys know about the security leaks found within the cake software...

      This has been a major factor in the decline of players ...

      I can't remember where i found this information out but apparently the software is seriously flawed...

      I'm sure a quick google search will give you all you need to know...

      This is a summary from an article on PTR dated July 26th,2010:

      In summary, there is a critical network vulnerability in the Cake poker network’s software which makes it possible to steal account information including username and passwords, and view hole cards. There is no 100% protection until the Cake poker network upgrades to OpenSSL. Cake has an erroneous security notice on their website which claims to implement a type of encryption that they do not have.


      And this was published on August 5th, 2010 :

      Cake Poker has released an update that includes SSL encryption for the second time. We can verify that the data stream is SSL encrypted on both the standard software and the beta client. We have been unable to reproduce any of the vulnerabilities we detected previously. We have not been able to verify that the SSL implimentation has been rolled out to all of the individual skins.


      So i guess its up to everyone to decide for themselves if they trust the cake network or not from now on.

      Cheers for the clarification, but please let's not make this a Cake security discussion - for those, we have the separate Cake forum ;)

      Hadi

      It would be nice if poker rooms page reflected which poker rooms have native Mac OS clients.

      Just to answer this for you:
      PokerStars
      Full Tilt
      OnGame
      AP/UB (Cereus)
      OnGame (bwin, etc.)

      Party has a decent flash client. It writes hand histories so you can use a hud with it.

      Merge is launching their native Mac client on September 7th.
