Steam has been hacked?

22 posts in this topic

I have little details but the store is fucked right now, random languages, random shit in my cart, many people reporting it too. Watch yourselves.

Seems more likely to be a problem with Steam itself, it is logging people into the wrong accounts as well as allowing them to see the email, phone, and credit card number of people if they go to account information. Steam itself and others with more technical knowledge seem to be saying they were not hacked (which probably just ends up making Steam look even worse). If you buy games with Paypal you can login to paypal and cancel automatic payments to Steam, but it is best to avoid Steam for now (if you can even get to it anymore) as it looks like they finally shut down the site and store after about two hours of this.

That pic. Goddamn I don't want to laugh.

But I guess I'll have to change my pass once I get the chance...

This should go without saying but obviously don't click on Steam related links or things that say they can help you. Steam might not have been hacked by people trying to steal your info, but that doesn't mean people can't take advantage of Steam's fuck ups.

 

I'm having more fun reading twitter than I would have had on Steam

That may be the only thing people can't see (if someone happens to randomly get your account and look at account information).

joking aside, this is pretty fucked up 

for some reason im still online, yet at the same time im offline in the community tab as it says i have to login 

i can still chat with people, which is quite odd. 

i will just leave it alone for now and play something else

Everything seems to be down, steam site, steam itself. Might have been a good time to activate that steam mobile security thing they where pressing a while ago. I tried to login, and it says that i have a connection issue. Hope it all gets fixed soon. Guess i won`t be able to blow up some cars today. :(

Its probably some sort of cache error that happend in the steam servers.

Lizard Squad is claiming the act. If enough say they didn't do it, will they throw a fit?

Possibly, but that isn't an official Steam account.

Yeah I know but steam has been working for me now. 

 

It'd be GREAT if Valve were to say anything. Maybe they'll send a notice attached to Half Life 3.

"Steam is back up and running without any known issues," a Valve spokesperson told GameSpot. "As a result of a configuration change earlier today, a caching issue allowed some users to randomly see pages generated for other users for a period of less than an hour. This issue has since been resolved. We believe no unauthorized actions were allowed on accounts beyond the viewing of cached page information and no additional action is required by users."

I was at my parent's place the whole day. Only found out about it in the afternoon when I finished watching Archer on Netflix and switched to Youtube and saw TB's video on it:

 

Glad it's resolved now though.

Coincidentally, the Facebook account that also uses the same e-mail as my Steam account was hacked into three days ago. It wasn't my real account, thankfully and I used a pseudonym for that account. All they did was add friends who I didn't know. Wonder if it's at all connected.
