Steam hacked : Change passwords : Hope you’ve been using PayPal, and not shoving your bank details in there.. Linkage

Fook. Can't remember what password I used for the forum (probably one of the shit ones, so I've updated Facebook and Reddit) but getting their hands on the card details is worrying.

Hey, at least I can still play Skyrim in an hour!

Nice of them to have placed a human-apology on the front of their news page.
So used to seeing stupid corporate carefully worded "warnings" on all these things, that seeing someone actually apologise for a change is a massive difference.
Bravo Valve!

Guess I'm lucky I never purchased anything on there. Only signed up to get Portal 1 free (when it was available).

Thank goodness for Steam Guard, then. If they have got the main Steam passwords as well, then I guess that will alleviate some of the problem.

Steam Guard is nice to have. And I only used PayPal. I should be good.
And it's worth it, for Skyrim.
Only 15 hours logged so far, though

After changing all my passwords, I no longer have any idea what they are. Joy.

Turns out it was only the forum that was compromised, so unless you use the same password on both Steam and forum, then you should be safe.

Well, that's a relief, since I don't use the forums.
