Customers' names, screen names, birth dates, e-mail addresses, phone numbers and mailing and IP addresses were posted online.
The poker site Ultimate Bet (UB) recently suffered a data breach that provided attackers with personal information on up to 3.5 million people.
"Ultimate Bet, a property of the Cereus Poker Network, saw a slew of customer information posted online including players' names, screen names, birth dates, e-mail addresses, phone numbers and mailing and IP addresses," writes Threatpost's Christopher Brook.
"Users’ UB account numbers were also found online in addition to their VIP, Affiliate and Blacklist statuses, all which are unique to the site," Brook writes. "Customers’ credit card numbers and social security numbers don’t appear to have been leaked in this particular incident."
