When it comes to online gambling, the biggest fear that players have is having their information stolen. Not only do they have to worry about losing their information to the site, but now they have to worry about hackers as well. Many players spend a lot of time looking into an online gambling casino to see if they are highly recommended, if they have a good reputation, how easy their pay outs are, etc. so that they can be assured that they are getting the best possible security situation before they put all of their personal and financial information in the hands of someone on the other end of the proverbial line.
But, what many of them do not think about is the security system that the online casino uses. What the internet gambling industry is finding is that there are many hackers out there that are simply spending their days trying to get into this personal and financial information that is stored on their sites – so that they can rip off their players. It is important that players check to see what kind of encryption, etc. the site is using before they hand over the information that is needed to create an account.
According to the , there was yet another breach at an online gambling site – this time at Ultimate Bet. Their latest security breach involves the personal information of 3.5 online poker players. A link was posted to the internet, and it gave out information on each of the players – name, address, email, phone number, deposit methods used, account balance, and account numbers for the site – as well as other information. This only serves to make players that much more cautious when playing, and it should serve as a wake up call to those that are not taking security seriously enough.
