>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.

It was a question of time, really. I'm not surprised they went for the forums - I can imagine they are less protected than the Steam network itself.

Changed my Steam forum password. Here's hoping no credit card information gets misused.

Eh, damn, can't change it yet. I'll do it as soon as I can. Also changed my Paypal password to be sure.

Oh god, I hope things go okay for everyone else. I got lucky and deleted my card information not too long ago.

Mmm...hashed and salted passwords...

I'm not too worried about it since most of my Steam transactions go through Papal, but I will give my credit union a heads up in the morning, just in case.

It's just nice to see somebody encrypts their information, unlike some other video game companies.
