Valve assures users that no credit card information has been leaked.
Steam faced a rather strange issue earlier today when users’ information had been swapped with each other, allowing you to effectively access other players’ accounts. Following some downtime to address the same, Steam is back up and running and Valve has confirmed that there haven’t been any unauthorized actions or leakage of credit card information.
This was revealed in an email to Game Informer when Valve stated that, “We believe no unauthorized actions were allowed on accounts beyond the viewing of cached page information and no additional action is required by users.”
As for the credit card or PayPal info, Valve revealed that these details could not be accessed during the issue and were thus safe. Regardless, make sure you check your transaction history to ensure that no purchases have been made without your knowledge recently.
What are your thoughts on this issue, especially since Steam is usually very tight in security? Let us know in the comments.
