Steam - You too?

Hide your accounts, hide your credit cards cause they hacking errbody out here.

 - Not you too Antoine!!! -

The target this time was Steam.

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.

Imagine having an account with about 400€ worth of games (not that impossible) and having it hacked and stolen. This is the worst nightmare for some users.

Guess no lessons were learned from Sony. Bad Steam. Bad. Not you Gabe. I still love you.

Now do we get free games? Pretty please?

No info on the accounts or what kind of information was stolen. But they do advise to watch credit card movements and change the password. But more important. Which game will we get for this?
