FourFourThree: Chess software that lets users play online games has been compromised and the hackers stole the database containing passwords and other sensitive information, according to the site owner.
The site was hacked on Tuesday morning, according to a post on the chess site’s Facebook page.
“We are very sorry for the loss of data we are working on,” it said.
A source who has access to the database told The Associated Press that it was breached around 5:30am local time and the data includes names, passwords and credit card numbers.

The hack comes after hackers stole credit card information from the site and a user’s email address.
The hackers also compromised the site’s login page and some of the sites website’s functionality.
The site owner told The AP that the hackers took the passwords and encrypted the site data.
One person who uses the site said he had been playing chess for about two years and has not had any problems.
He told the AP that he used the site for training and was not worried about it.
“I haven’t been hacked,” he said.
“They’re going to do it again.”
The site is managed by the Chess Club of Australia, an online chess club in Victoria.
An AP reporter asked the Chess club if it was aware of the breach and was unable to confirm that it had been hacked.
The Chess Club said it had not been contacted.
The hacker, who also claimed to be the owner of the Chess Games website, is unknown.
