New software glitch found at Cereus Poker

Posted by Steve Ruddock on May 08, 2010 Posted in Online Poker News | No Comments »

Poker Table Ratings informed the online poker community that it had “cracked the code” for both Cereus Poker Network sites, UB and Absolute Poker. PTR informed the network that it was able to find a software flaw that could allow would be hackers to see a player’s hole cards.

This time around the Cereus Network was quick to issue a statement, through COO Paul Leggett, on the matter:

“One hour ago, I learned about an article posted today on Poker Table Ratings (PTR) regarding an issue with the local encryption that we use on the Cereus Poker Network.

“For those of you not familiar with the issue, PTR was able to crack our local encryption method.

“I wanted to blog to make sure our players and the poker community know how seriously we take this issue.

“I would like to start by reminding everyone that someone would have to have the technical capabilities to crack the encryption method we currently use and they would also have to hack into your local network in order to gain access to sensitive [player gaming] data.  We are currently working on implementing a new encryption method and we expect to have it live in a matter of hours.”

The sites did update their software and promised a more permanent solution by switching from XOR encryption, to the industry standard SSL.

p.s. The image is meant to be Ironic.
