Susan Polgar's Chess Discussion Forums Allegedly Hacked


Susan Polgar, famous Chess Grandmaster, started a Chess Discussion forum a number of months ago. As of this post, the forums are unavailable, and discussion on Susan's blog in the Saturday Open forum section has allegations of computer hackers being the reason.

While unconfirmed at this point, the site http://chessdiscussion.com/ is definitely down. Hopefully there will be an official word on the forums and what happened soon.

Yes, the site was hacked. We are working to get it back online soon.

Best wishes,
Susan Polgar

I was very sorry to hear about it Susan, you do so much for chess around the world - especially with the youth. I hope the identities of those responsible are found and they face the consequences for their actions.
