Steam Hackers May Have Taken Credit Card Details

Valve have posted a new message from Gabe Newell about last year’s intrusion of the Steam forums.

During their investigation of last year’s intrusion, security experts have learned that the intruders may have obtained a copy of a backup file with information about Steam transactions between 2004 and 2008.  This backup file contained user names, email addresses, encrypted billing addresses and encrypted credit card information, but not Steam passwords.

Valve are still investigating the incident.
