Notice from Steam / Gabe

Quote
Dear Steam Users and Steam Forum Users:

Our Steam forums were defaced on the evening of Sunday, November 6. We began investigating and found that the intrusion goes beyond the Steam forums.

We learned that intruders obtained access to a Steam database in addition to the forums. This database contained information including user names, hashed and salted passwords, game purchases, email addresses, billing addresses and encrypted credit card information. We do not have evidence that encrypted credit card numbers or personally identifying information were taken by the intruders, or that the protection on credit card numbers or passwords was cracked. We are still investigating.

We don’t have evidence of credit card misuse at this time. Nonetheless you should watch your credit card activity and statements closely.

While we only know of a few forum accounts that have been compromised, all forum users will be required to change their passwords the next time they login. If you have used your Steam forum password on other accounts you should change those passwords as well.

We do not know of any compromised Steam accounts, so we are not planning to force a change of Steam account passwords (which are separate from forum passwords). However, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to change that as well, especially if it is the same as your Steam forum account password.

We will reopen the forums as soon as we can.

I am truly sorry this happened, and I apologize for the inconvenience.

Gabe.


So if you have same passwords for steam forums and steam or if you used your cc's to buy games via steam watch what goes on with it. Generally most major credit card companies wont allow it to happen or you will get it taking care of it something happens to your card ( aka a purchase you did not authorize) by them. Just contact them if something does come up.

Either way advise all PugGamers to change their steam account password for safety.

I don't remember if I have a Steam forum account. But I'm going to nonetheless wait for a few days. I know that if someone tries to log into my account, I'll get an email from Steam Guard, if that happens, I'll chance my password.
Thankfully my parents have gotten a  new credit card since my last purchase from Steam Smiley
