Troubling news indeed
If your STEAM account and STEAM Forum user name and password are the same , it would be prudent to change the STEAM account password and secret question.
"The Steam Forums are temporarily offline for maintenance. Your patience is appreciated.â€ť Thatâ€™s the message youâ€™ll get if youâ€™re trying to log into the Steam forums at the moment. Theyâ€™ve been taken down due to an apparent hack that briefly saw front page text changed to advertise a game hacks site. Eurogamer say that some Steam users have had their email addresses spammed with messages from this site
A screenshot of the Steam forums before the hack shows that the official notices section at the top of the page had been altered to promote a site called Fkn0wned. The hack is a worrying breach of Steamâ€™s usually watertight security, and is especially concerning for users whose Steam login details are the same as their Steam account username and password. Valve havenâ€™t commented on the breach yet."
