Steam Forums Hacked; Encrypted credit card information and passwords compromised

Bad news for everyone as the Steam forums have been hacked. Not only that, but some encrypted credit card information and user passwords have been compromised. That is according to Gabe Newell himself, as a few minutes ago he informed us about Steam’s breach. In other words guys, change your passwords and watch your credit cards activity.
According to Gabe, the Steam forumsĀ got hacked on Sunday, November 6th and during Valve’s invastigation, they found out that the intrusion went beyond the Steam forums.
As of right now, there hasn’t been any evidence of credit misuse or that the encrypted credit card numbers or personally identifying information were taken by the intruders.
