Online bookmaker BET24.com warned punters on Monday that their personal 
data may have been exposed during a security breach – a security breach 
that may have taken place in December of 2009.

Amazingly the gambling site has only just alerted customers to the 
potential leak some 19 months after the original incident, but BET24.com 
maintain that they have been taking other measures to ensure site 

The official warning follows news of the arrest of a suspect found in 
possession of “unauthorised copies of personal customer information 
relating to various companies, including BET24” and will come as 
worrying news for players.

Perhaps more alarming is the fact that BET24.com have confirmed that the 
data included customer names, addresses, emails, user account IDs, 
account passwords and encrypted payment card numbers, all of which had 
been used in fraud on the site.
