Yesterday, a score of 2,047,999,000 was posted.

 

It was again posted by one of the two HACKERS of this gaming platform.

 

Imagine, over 2 BILLION points scored.

 

And AARP AND @AARPLynne still maintains its silence.

 

If their CYBERSECURITY is this lax on this platform; is it possible that our MEMBERSHIP information has also been hacked and personal information stolen?

 

Why else would AARP maintain such silence?

Overnight, two scores in the BILLIONS, have been posted to the BLACKJACK scoreboard, both by the same two users that have posted all the other IMPOSSIBLE scores.

 

A score of 1,228,799,000 and a score of 1,955,665,300 have been posted.

 

This is obviously a HACK of the games platform but, day after day, AARP and their representative, @AARPLynne, have maintained complete silence.

Day after day, @AARPLynne and the AARP staff are ignoring the DAILY HACKING of one of their games on the games platform, BLACKJACK.

 

It is clear that this is a purposeful HACK of the platform and NOT a GLITCH.

 

Today, one of the regular three HACKERS posted a score of:

 

                                        977,831,200

 

Try playing the game and you will see that the above score is IMPOSSIBLE.

 

Why @AARPLynne and the AARP staff is ignoring this issue and LETTING these HACKERS post these IMPOSSIBLE scores day after day is not understandable.

 

My concern is that the security of the entire AARP Web Site is at risk here and @AARPLynne and the AARP staff are doing nothing about it.

Where is AARP's representative to this board?

 

Now a high score of 409,599,000 has been posted.

 

It is clear now that two or three users of this games platform have the ability to hack the games platform at will and they are doing it with impunity.

 

Why is AARP allowing these two or three users to hack their web site on a daily basis?

 

It doesn't make sense.

 

It also doesn't make sense that @AARPLynne has not been transparent as to what is happening here.

 

The impossible scores are NOT a top score position glitch; these scores are being input PURPOSEFULLY by these hackers.

Yet another IMPOSSIBLE SCORE of 211,620,600 posted today in BLACKJACK.

 

And STILL no response from AARP on how these 2 or 3 users are accomplishing this hack into the gaming platform.

Day after day, AARP seems to be ignoring what seems to be a security breach on its gaming platform.

 

Today, the same two users that had previously posted scores of 9,000,000 and 10,000,000, and a day later posted scores of 79,000,000 and 81,000,000 have now posted scores of:

 

                                163,199,000 and 130,015,348

 

These posts are NOT GLITCHES. They are a purposeful placement of scores IMPOSSIBLE TO ATTAIN through normal play.

 

@AARPLynnehas maintained complete silence on how these two players are able to post these IMPOSSIBLE SCORES.

 

She has passed the buck to another department and explains the issue as a glitch in the top scorer position.

 

As we can see, the same two users are posting these IMPOSSIBLE scores day after day, which means it isn't a glitch with the top scoring position.

 

In fact, I was in the top scoring position overnight and NOTHING happened to my score whatsoever.

 

I don't believe @AARPLynne is being transparent with the issue here.

Once again, today, one of the two posters of IMPOSSIBLE SCORES posted a 30,000,000+ score.

 

This is the same person who posted a 79,000,000+ score just two days ago.

 

Tell us, @AARPLynne........... should we be worried about the security of your games platform?????

Hi @nctarheel, I see the leaderboard scores that you mention as well. This is in the hands of the product team--they are working to correct the scoring glitches but the work is not finished. We will post here when the work is completed. Thank you.


Scoring Glitches in BLACKJACK, you say?????

 

Then why are the same two players who posted impossible scores of 9,000,000 and 10,000,000 a couple of days ago now have scores posted of 79,000,000 and 81,000,000, @AARPLynne?

 

If there were a scoring glitch, all sorts of people would have these IMPOSSIBLE SCORES; but that is NOT the case.

 

Please be transparent with the users of these boards.

 

If there is a security flaw in your games platform; please tell the truth to the users that use it.

 

It is no wonder that today, one hour into the new scoring day, not ONE PERSON has played this game.

I do not understand why you are calling these "scoring glitches". The impossible scores are being posted by the same three or four people over and over.

 

The "glitches" don't seem to be happening to anyone else.

 

Are they addressing that issue as well, @AARPLynne ?????
