Steam users have been urged to change their passwords and monitor their credit card transactions after Valve boss Gabe Newell sent out an email letting the public know that their user database has been compromised.
CRAP BRB... Ok I'm good now. I thought Steam would have the greatest defense ever?!?! I guess no one is safe in this world.
No one is. They try though. I'll give them credit for that.
My phone number, name, CC, address might all be compromised :S
Remove it till they remedy the situation? Even though that technically won't help because assuming they get hacked again, we may not know till after the wrong is done.
But the hack has already happened, so yeah I removed it but its probably too late.
Seems like everyones getting hacked now
i haven't received any emails from steam? u=im from the uk could this potentially just be an american issue?
1) http://forums.steampowered.... 2) No. Their entire database.
Phew, I just changed my Password to "Password1" Should be safe now...I was worried for a second I would get h4x0r3d for a minute there. Can't be to safe on the Interwebs.
Just curious why this isn't on the front page like when PSN was hacked. OT: I change my password already. Always used paypal as payment whenever it is accepted just for this type of situation.
Oi vey, Everything has been hacked recently. What the hell is going on with defense systems.... I never save credit card info on steam, for this reason lol.
