Valve ha decidido pedir disculpas tras el grave problema sucedido el 25 de Diciembre, muchas cuentas fueron vulneradas y lo arreglaron pasadas las horas.
34.000 cuentas, ese es el número de los afectados, Steam es una de las plataformas más utilizadas para la descarga digital de videojuegos y crece debido a la alta demanda.
Comunicado en inglés:
“On December 25th, a configuration error resulted in some users seeing Steam Store pages generated for other users. Between 11:50 PST and 13:20 PST store page requests for about 34k users, which contained sensitive personal information, may have been returned and seen by other users.
The content of these requests varied by page, but some pages included a Steam user’s billing address, the last four digits of their Steam Guard phone number, their purchase history, the last two digits of their credit card number, and/or their email address. These cached requests did not include full credit card numbers, user passwords, or enough data to allow logging in as or completing a transaction as another user.
If you did not browse a Steam Store page with your personal information (such as your account page or a checkout page) in this time frame, that information could not have been shown to another user.
Valve is currently working with our web caching partner to identify users whose information was served to other users, and will be contacting those affected once they have been identified. As no unauthorized actions were allowed on accounts beyond the viewing of cached page information, no additional action is required by users”.
