2+2 forum shut down by Hackers?

We tried to go on 2+2 to find out the latest of Internet Poker news & views and found this message:

04/26/2012 2:13pm ET: Forums closed for maintenance

On April 26th at approximately 11:20 AM pacific time, the Two Plus Two Forums were closed as a result of a hacker who has displayed the ability to access e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords. He also indicated the ability to decrypt passwords.

While it is unclear the extent of data to which he gained access, e-mail addresses and passwords on the Two Plus Two forums should be considered compromised. If you have used your 2+2 password on any other site, you are advised to change it.

For your security we are closing the forums until the breach is patched.

We hope to be back up as soon as possible.

We hope 2+2 is up and running soon, we just love the insight and information available.
