Gabe Newell confirms Steam security compromise

Post by TheHidden01 on Fri Nov 11, 2011 11:54 am



A few days ago we reported that Valve's Steam forum security had been compromised. A letter from Valve head-honcho Gabe Newell today confirms this fact and reveals that the intruders also gained access to a Steam database that contained a ton of personal information, such as usernames, encrypted passwords, email addresses, and encrypted credit card information. Newell adds that there is currently no evidence that any of that information was actually taken by the intruders or that credit card numbers or passwords were cracked.

Steam users will be required to change their forum passwords when the forums are opened back up. While the company claims that no Steam accounts have been compromised, if your forum password was the same as your account password, a change would likely be a good idea.
