1 of the reasons why i dont do any online banking

In the case of a player like you or me i agree but im sure Daniel needs more funds to play at the stakes that he does.

So the hacker didn't try and take any money, but hacked his account to play and lose money. Strange risk for no reward... Surely there's more to it, maybe someone he lost the money to was in on it

Casino have to create 'Bank" to save our money , something like pending withdrawal, Our real account decrease and save to casino Bank. If we want to play again just click cancel withdraw.

Anyway I really can't understand why people let their lot of money at online casino. Cos they are so rich ? Smile Smile

Ho boy, this is a real security matter, first thing first, some comments talk about Daniel account 46k was only pocket change.....Hey realy!!!!, the fact that he as money is nobody's business, he earned it, second, every sunday someone is winning big on the sunday million, and i'm sure they would'nt want their account hack, we should be able to play online with some peace of mind, but it is tricky, so many people can be involved, hackers and friends of those, and also maybe some people keep their passwords on their e-mail account because they have multisites, not a good idea....hope security will increase ....i'm sure they can find from wich computer it has been done ( IPS ).....Can't wait to ear more about it, Let us know Dan and good luck at the table Blink

This is the price of the fame, and probably the hacker tryed to prove himself he could do that. I can understand everything is possible, but it is very bad for pokerstars, everything can think his money is not sure. Pokerstars must do something quickly.

Somebody says that money is pocket change for Negreanu. I think a "few" thousands dollars are too much for everybody. Negreanu need much hours for winning that money.

something was happening, something that Negreanu said and upset some people. I think those hackers were put by someone to do this stuff. It's good that they spend only $46k. Could be worse

is so complicated, they are hacking up poker accounts if the account of a pro site has no more security of amateur imagine, already know how the hacker did it? it is interesting that the guy lost money negreanu of the concern is with the image.
