Just an FYI it seems that a MASSIVE security breach hit Steam just now. Users are reporting they can see E-mail/ credit card info of random people account so to be safe I would call up your banks if you have CC info linked to steam.

Has someone struck the impenetrable Steam?!
Didn't see that one coming
It couldn't be those Phantom Squad weirdos, right?

Steam is having big issues but from what I can gather its not a attack its just caching difficulties, also the error is very sporadic and seems to be completely random. As for credit cards and information again it is incredibly random and from what I have gathered its only for some users too. The glitch seems to more commonly just change the language of Steam and currency. I would not worry to badly and I don't know if its just for me but it seems Steam has been shut down now so nothing can be exploited either. If you do get on just don't use the Steam market or buy something or register or unregister a card and you should be fine.

Valve has now shut down the Steam store entirely. Not sure what took them so long.

Well, it seems someone is also trying to fuck with PSN.
It's not completely down for me, but when i'm browsing the store, i keep getting timed out every so often.

Update: Forget what i said, its down.
I fucking hate it when this shit happens

lolno. It's seems like a bug in the caching server, people can't actually do anything on your account.

EDIT: Reports of people being able to buy things on other people's accounts. wat.

I kept going to my "cart" but it wasn't my "cart" . I'd go to my wishlist and it also wouldn't be "my wishlist". Always someone else's, even my profile, ahaha.

It was pretty confusing at first. Welp, hope it gets fixed soon.

For anyone interested there is additional information and discussion in another thread that's now been closed (because topic-wise it duplicates this one). If you want to read other comments go there (you won't be able to post there though, since it's closed):

Wouldn't worry about credit card info, since they usually put xxxxx and reveals only 4 numbers.
