Beta test sign up info exposed
So i read online that 4 kings was recently hacked and all our beta signup info was posted on the interwebs. YIKES!! It would have been nice if DL had informed its customers that their info was compromised and is floating freely all over the web. It was nice to see my email and real name on the web. NOT IMPRESSED !!! Seeing as every person who participated in the betas email and real name are posted online it would have been nice to hear from Digital leisure officially about this. Why was our information compromised? what are you doin to safeguard our info in the future?

and furthermore it is NOT my job to contact Digital Leisure it is THEIR job to notify any consumers of their products if any personal information has been compromised. I highly doubt DL is NOT aware of this seeing as the people tweeted directly to DL and so far have refused to comment in any way. Seems shady They should notify all their userbase to change any passwords associated with the compromised emails

The data seems to be from the web page form they had set up to send out the beta codes to people, going by the fact it lists the redeem code and the status of the mail eg "SENT", why it's still not good that the data as been hacked, at least it's not the main Casino database, but that's really the only plus said to this, that and fact what no password details or bank details would have been saved in that database but i guess all that data would be saved on PSN anyway with it being PSN store and login.
During a routine maintenance of our beta test servers, it was discovered that the information you provided when signing up for the initial closed beta test of Four Kings was exposed. This would have included the First Name, Last Name, PSN ID and email address you provided in the online web sign up form along with an IP address.
To protect against such issues in the future, we recently upgraded our security standards and have added additional encryption to our internal systems.
We will be contacting those directly involved via email with additional details.
Thank you for your continued understanding and support.
Those involved will be contacted directly today. Please note that this was strictly regarding the closed beta test sign up. We do not store any passwords, addresses, credit cards...etc related to any of your accounts. Once again, please accept our apologies for the incident. We'll continue to work to safeguard data provided.
I would guess it was removed because it was misleading to others who might have read it. People need to keep in mind that why personal data being accessed by hackers is never good, the fact remains that the Four Kings Casino & Slots itself was not hacked.
It was the database for the website based signup form for the beta codes that was accessed and only email, psn and name seems to be the only personal data that got out, what by it self is not really harmful, because for it to be of any use in gaining access to login details, they would need access to your email account itself and not just its address, because most online logins send a confirm link via email to reset any passwords or ask for more personal details like address, date of birth and so on.
All passwords and bank details and home address for Four Kings will be stored on Sony's servers and DL will not have access to that, because they use the PSN user and store systems.
This would have included the First Name, Last Name, PSN ID and email address you provided in the online web sign up form along with an IP address.
Actually Carla DL said themselves right here if u even read it that our ip adresses are freely out there and can be used by the hackers in many ways.
This is disheartening for the fact that most of the hackers out there have booters and stress testers they use for this explicit purpose.
Please dont try to explain away the data leak as " oh its only an email and username lol' it is alot worse and i would appreciate next time (if there is a next time) tht Digital Leisure not wait over 5 days from the info being freely available to contacting those effected. What a joke.
A real name and email and an ipadress are more than enough for a hacker to start identity theft.

I just want to know if I'm in the leaked list or not. Why won't you just tell me that, Digital Leisure? I'm not asking for other people's info, nor even mine (I already know mine). Just friggin' tell me. Is it really that hard? With this and constantly being disconnected from poker matches today and yesterday and not even getting chips back, I'm getting pretty frustrated at DL.
