    I would not only keep an eye on steam accounts, but on credit card spending too. Check your bills :)

    I think it was Tad or Nexxo that said they only use paypal with places they don't trust.

    That's why I only bought one thing via steam and even that stuffed up!

    Same here, I had thought of it but...
    That's a great plan, if I had a paypal account, and if they don't get hacked.

    I'm guessing he gets caught - then hired *#%&@! :sigh:

    well, when steam can't even get 'friends' or 'favorites' to work properly, what did you honestly expect.

    @ jakenbake
    Friends works flawlessly for me, as well as Favorites.
    They have been revamped recently.

    I hope the CC info only is for cyber cafes, because I think Steam only knows the last 4 digits of credit cards numbers: if I want to buy a new game I have to retype the number.
    I used my FATHER's credit card, telling him it was secure, and now this happens... bugger.

    He definitely hacked the webserver and an internal fileserver, but as of yet there's absolutely no proof that he really has financial records.

    I wouldn't get too worried yet.
