Valve boss Gabe Newell has apologized to over 12,000 Steam account holders after they were mistakenly banned for playing Modern Warfare 2 for using anti-cheating software. It has been reported that Gabe Newell sent out emails to all the affected account holders explaining them the situation. And so how does Valve make up for all this? They will be giving free copies of Left 4 Dead 2 to all those who got affected plus freebies that they can share with their friends.
Gabe Newell said, “The problem was that Steam would fail a signature check between the disk version of a DLL and a latent memory version, This was caused by a combination of conditions occurring while Steam was updating the disk image of a game.”
