Software provider blamed for privacy issues
This week Lock Poker found itself in the midst of a privacy scandal when a player reported serious violations of confidentiality and privacy due to a software shortcoming which exposed customers' usernames and passwords, and even stored these in plain text, which could be accessed by the site's employees.
The player identified as 'Deafeye' claimed that he had warned the company about the fault in mid-2011, and that since nothing has been done about it, he decided to make the issue public.
A poster on the forum where the scandal was publicized, who claims to represent Lock Poker, responded rather unconvincingly, laying blame on software provider RTG which he claims caused the breach that broke the site's encryption.
He added that Lock Poker had therefore fixed the original problem, but that the same thing happened again more recently when RTG pushed through another update, with the same result.
"We have taken steps to ensure that future updates won't cause this to happen again," the Lock Poker rep concluded. "No one should be seeing it anymore, and if for some reason someone does please let me know about it ASAP so I can have the appropriate people look at it.'
