http://kotaku.com/5858473/steam-hacked-valve-investigating-possible-credit-card-theft

Hackers accessed a Valve server containing the following information:

Encrypted and salted credit card numbers
Encrypted passwords (For the Steam Forums if I'm reading this right; Valve isn't forcing new Steam passwords, only new forum ones)
Game purchases
Billing addresses

No proof of credit card misuse right now, but the warning is out.

tl;dr hackers making this world a no-fun-allowed zone. At least it sounds like Valve has gone through greater measures to encrypt our information than a...certain other company. Just going to wait this out- at least Steam won't be going down for a month.

Goodie, I have just finished memorizing my new credit card number and I was wondering when I'd need to do it all over again.

*sigh*

At least, I never participated in Valve's forums so that aspect to the whole thing doesn't affect me.

Fuck. Sony was nothing I had to worry about; I don't have a PS3.

This, however, is a bit of a concern.

Is it some kind of fad to hack video game related systems, or do I only hear about the video game ones because that's all the news I follow?

I'm not sure there's a specific fad related to video games. Air Miles was also hit ealier this year, along with a news source whose name I can't remember right now.

Still, this is annoying.
