Change your everything. In short, the hackers had access to a database containing a wide array of information. Encoded credit card numbers, hashed/salted passwords for Steam and the Steam Forum, usernames, emails, and games you've downloaded.

Thanks for the heads up, but I think Gryhm's the only one who would need to freak out about this Razz

It involves me deeply. If they managed to decrypt the password table, and use my information, I'd be losing my mind. There's a solid $800 or so in my account.

I'm assuming if we don't know what steam is, we don't have to worry about this?

People who have to worry about this are Euphy, Choco, Pyro, Link, Lewa, Mac, and myself because we all play games from Steam. This includes Magicka, WoW, Terraria, Team Fortress 2 and Star Craft. In a nutshell.

I've learnt my lesson (blueherring)

My bank and paypal passwords are unique so I'm fine.

Did Blue ever actually take anything from you? Or did he just point out the hole in your security?

I've been pushed (suggested would be the better term) to sign up for Steam by Pyro and Ro-D in the past but I never got around to it. Turns out I avoided trouble there. In fact I joined the PSN after the 2 massive breaches. The only one I wasn't so lucky on was the PWO breach but even so, I wasn't hacked in any of my accounts. Wooo for procrastination!

Nah, he didn't take any money, he just hijacked my 2 paypal accounts, changed the passwords and security questions. Had to phone them up the next day.
