I just saw this on www.PokerProphecy.com. (http://www.PokerProphecy.com.)

Who knows more about the following news found on this site?

NEWS : In light of the recent letters our customers have been receiving regarding Party Poker (and skins) hacking into their computers, we temporarily recommend that people do not purchase our product for Party Poker (there are no problems with Paradise Poker, and if you like, we can transfer your account over to Paradise and credit you $40 towards that service). If this problem persists, we will also transfer all of our customer's accounts over to PokerStars with a $40 credit towards that service. This product will be out within 2-3 weeks. In the meantime, we strongly recommend that you don't use the software version of our product, and uninstall it from your computer (as Party Poker can invade your harddrive). You may optionally, use our web based searches, which appear to be undetectable by the hackers at Party Poker. We suggest you e-mail Party Poker with your displeasure about them invading your privacy. At this point no funds have been confiscated by Party Poker or their skins. This message from us is simply a general warning.

There's a lot of talk on pt forum. After reading one poster (and agreeing with him) it sounds like these guys don't know what they're doing or are really steamed at pp. The pt poster pointed out pp doesn't need to "hack into your computer" because pp's software is already running on your computer.

And since pokeredge was the other supposed cheating software I thought it was curious that pe's website has a link to get a free copy of pe by signing up at empire (party?) using the link /images/graemlins/smile.gif

It would be nice if pp would just come right out and say what's cheating and which software isn't allowed.

Hasn't anyone thought that if they did - the whole world would know about PT and all of the other programs. THAT WOULD BE HORRIBLE!
