Unless you have been under a rock for the last couple of weeks, you have heard about the Cereus security flaw. For those that have been under a rock, there was a flaw with the encryption that Cereus used that would allow someone to view another player’s hole cards over an unsecured wireless network. No instances of cheating have been discovered to date as a result and Cereus quickly changed their encryption over to a SSL based encryption. They are currently investigating to see if anyone used this flaw to exploit other players.
