Estonian Developer Caught Hacking into PokerPlasm Twitter Account

published on 09/30/09 at 11:28 am

A Estonian man fingered by PokerPlasm, Inc. as working for an computer espionage/hacking team has finally been identified. A name that has been withheld hacked into the PokerPlasm twitter account yesterday and abducted the Chief Executive’s name for 24 hours (see related story: Where in the World is PokerPlasm?).

The PokerPlasm-Estonian espionage scandal erupted Wednesday in full public view, PokerPlasm officials said. After a news leak led PokerPlasm to announce it had asked the Estonian ambassador to the United States to investigate alleged business and trade espionage against the international company.

His Excellency, Mr. Reinart,

My name is Trevor Holewinski, and on Tuesday, September 29, 2009, a citizen of your country hacked into my twitter account using a 3rd party software. This gentleman is using this website for purposes that are unlawful according to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1984 (amended in 2001 under the Patriot Act) and the Identity Theft Enforcement and Restitution Act of 2008.

I would believe that many others have been duped into using his services under false pretenses and have had their identities changed.

Any investigation into this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Trevor Holewinski, CEO

No response has been forthcoming from the Estonian Ambassador.

“The manner in which this whole thing was done was provocative, inconsistent, and careless,” said PokerPlasm Chief Executive Officer, Trevor Holewinski.

“If manners had been followed,” one PokerPlasm official said Wednesday, “the two parties would have worked out a quiet accommodation.”

    This looks like it could escalate into a real international crisis. Should we start Boycotting all Estonian goods if this isn’t straightened out right away?

    I always thought Estonia was somewhere near Candy Land. Is this who you are waiting to hear from:
