            Just done a quick perused the internet looking this up, and apparently what brought the shut down about is that some NY attorney general's files regarding black friday were unsealed that revealed they were acting contrary to the AGCC's licenses.

                  Pokerstars response on twitter:

                  There's no need to be nervous, everything here at PokerStars is fine. We operate under a different license. Stay calm

                        Statement from PokerStars

                        STATEMENT FROM POKERSTARS

                        DOUGLAS, ISLE OF MAN – JUNE 29 – In light of today’s news that Alderney Gambling Control Commission has suspended Full Tilt Poker’s license, PokerStars wishes to assure our customers that their funds are completely safe and that our operations are completely unaffected. The Isle of Man Gaming Commission today re-affirmed that PokerStars' worldwide licensing is intact and that our operations are in full compliance with all of its requirements. PokerStars' online operations continue as normal and all funds in players’ accounts are safe and available for withdrawal as usual with no delays.
                        PokerStars also remains in full compliance with our licenses in other jurisdictions where we are regulated, including France, Italy and Estonia.
                        As provided under our licensing, PokerStars has always maintained the integrity and security of our players’ funds, by keeping all such funds in segregated bank accounts, always available for immediate withdrawal.
                        Since the actions of US Department of Justice in April, we have returned more than $120 million to US players and continue to act upon requests as they are received. Players outside the US have not been affected and all cash-outs have been processed without delays. Further, PokerStars entered into an agreement with the Department of Justice which expressly confirmed the company’s ability to operate outside the US.
                        We will continue to operate as a responsible corporate citizen and are committed to serving the needs of our customers in complete compliance with our regulatory requirements.
                        For further information please contact press@pokerstars.com.
