Hey TOGs, looks like someone hacked the forums at Steam. might be a good time to change your password, esp if you use the same one on the forums as your account.

Steam Forums Apparently Hacked | Kotaku Australia

Still, I did change my passwords, so thank-you for the heads-up.

funny how i have not got any email from steam about it.at the end of the day they have a responsibility to inform their users that their site has been hacked and assume that the account info has been taken.
