Online Poker-Cheat Leak Gives Up Data For 3 Million UltimateBet Playes!

If hasn't already had enough poker-cheating and security problems!

Now, in the latest cheat scandal, the names, real addresses, e-mail addresses as well as phone numbers and account detailed account info including balances of more than three million UltimateBet and Absolute Poker players had been compromised to the public in early December. The culprit, although unclear of what the intention was and by whom, was a faulty security device on a web-spammer’s site.

The full history of how the pilfered info got into the claws of e-mail marketers has not been detailed but many experts believe it is related to's post-cheating scandal collapse and egregious mis-management.

My take: UltimateBet and Absolute Poker just seem to be forever married to cheating at online poker and other interconnected scams.
