Steam Credit Card Data Compromised

Steam Credit Card Data Compromised

Valve’s download service Steam has been hacked, and security experts suspect that as a result, credit card data could be stolen. The company admitted that the intruders managed to hack a Steam database, which contains a lot of sensitive information, including user names, hashed and salted passwords, as well as information about the members’ game purchases, email addresses, and even encrypted credit card data.

However, there is still no precise evidence that could suggest that encrypted credit card numbers, as well as personally identifying data, were stolen by the intruders. They also can’t prove that the protection on the credit card numbers or passwords was broken. Still, everything may be revealed later, because the investigation is only in its early days.

The company’s statement read that Steam forums had been defaced on the 6th of November. Valve started to investigate the issue immediately after it figured out that the intrusion went beyond the forums. The company warned that punters are supposed to closely watch their credit card activity along with statements in order to make sure that the intruders haven’t found their way to use the data. Valve announced that there were not many forum accounts hacked. However, the company decided to ensure that all its members are protected, so all forum users will now need to change their passwords after they log in to the forums next time.

Thus far there haven’t been compromised Steam accounts revealed. This is supposed to mean that Valve wasn’t going to force a change of Steam account passwords as well. This is because those are different from forum passwords.

menahunie avatarOne way to stop all this crap is and I know it is going to be a little inconvenience to the users is log into a secure site like the type banks use; get a users key number one time use and good for a certain time period.
Then take that key number and log into your steam account for gaming and enter that key number.
Then you have your sensitive financial account totally separate from your gaming account.
Your gaming account would not have any of your personal information to be taken and used.

kingtiger01 avatar@Menahunie: or just simply use no-authentication and allow purchases to be done the old-fashion way. Who says you cant make purchases via there website and have the game authorized on another...

but thats valve's way of thinking these days, do everything partly through and wait till its a problem later...
