Steam Account Hacked via compromised Yahoo password


#1

Hi,

Just came here to say that my Steam account (created in the year 2003) has just recently been hacked. Valve notified me of hacking attempts coming from Romania that were successful in gaining access to my Steam account.

I am extremely diligent with account security and typically rotate ~25 passwords over the years. According to my spreadsheet there were only two accounts using the compromised password:


steam.com

Yahoo hit in worst hack ever, 500 million accounts swiped

Recommend changing your yahoo password and any other accounts that used the same password.

Best Wishes,
-Dave
