Bodog Poker Software Compromised

Bodog Poker Table
Share this

Bodog Poker's new anonymous poker tables that have been designed to conceal each player's identity - to give them protection from the sharks that might be preying on 'casual poker players' - made their debut last week in a software update. The idea to keep HUDs and data-mining sites from picking up information may have been great but the result was not.

From a report given by, each player's ID is exposed, Bodog's anonymous tables aren't so anonymous, and there's a possibility the new software is a big security risk for players.

Check out the video:

Obviously there have been emails by concerned players fearing the security breach and Bodog responded with the following email:

Thank you for contacting Bodog Poker Customer Service.
It's very understandable if our players are very concerned about the security of their accounts because of this video that has been posted on the Internet but we are assuring all of our players that all your account information is secured. We are aware of this video and we are investigating looking into this.
As per the anonymity of our poker tables, for the vast majority of our players, they will not know who they are playing against as they can't see a screen name or account number while at the tables; however, if someone wants to and has the technical skills to develop the software you saw on the forum they are able to — we are confident this will only be pursued in very isolated cases between now and a future upgrade which will prevent it from working.
If you are worried about the security of your account, having access to an account number is similar to having a screen name in the past. You still must have a password or the answers to your private security questions in order to access any personal or banking information.
