Steam is having malfunctions (NOT A HACK STILL NOT SAFE)
« on: December 25, 2015, 04:32:02 pm »
Steam is currently being hacked. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR ACCOUNT!!!!!!!!! The hackers are changing it so you log into a different account and could possibly steal your information. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ANYTHING WITH THE ACCOUNT they are targeting active accounts. If you don't do anything you probably won't be hacked. Just don't touch steam until it's all cleared up.
UPDATE: The store is offline. Still don't use the account. People have been reporting being given addresses and other information about random people. It's likely the hackers aren't taking it but just causing havoc.  Also a few weeks ago a hacker group said they would shut down PSN and XBL on Christmas. Weather or not this it related I don't know.
IT ISN'T A HACK it's a malfunction in the servers. Still DONT USE STEAM because people are still getting your information.

Just check the forums on the site
It'll help you :)

Also all these game pages on Facebook are saying that if you log into steam it could take you to another account and stuff

You're welcome. I was also trying to buy some games when I noticed that my account details were in Russian.

I don't think Steam was hacked. I heard it was a fuck up on their end.

I believe they took the store offline to help prevent further havoc.

It's fixed. Proceed with caution. Don't blame me if it isn't.

I don't think Steam was hacked. I heard it was a fuck up on their end.

All I can think of is when we had a caching glitch a couple years ago. It caused members to look like they were logged in as another person, so I can only assume (with my super limited technical knowledge) similar happened here.

Hopefully nobody managed to steal personal info :/

No one was able to (to my knowledge) and people couldn't change information on people's accounts. It's fixed now though.  :D
