      • Apparently (not confirmed) there is/was (since steam store is down right now) a catching issue with steam storage page what made people able to see other account details.

        • The damage is that some people now have information exposed which helps at recovering "lost" accounts. From what I've read you can't buy games or do any of that stuff. The only damage is that people see what you saw when you browsed steam websites (--> caching).
          Some people have their e-mail address, paypal account, last 4 digits of their CC exposed.

            Account information incorrect
            We've gotten reports that people sometimes see other people's account information on the account page. Valve has been made aware of this and are working on a fix.

            Some frequently asked questions:
            - No, Steam is not hacked

            - Creditcard info and phone numbers are, as required by law, censored and not visible to users
            If you find spelling errors, you are free to take them.

            • Yeah, Steam caching issue. Just don't visit Steam Store / any other steam site and you'll be just fine. (Don't do what i did, and go to steam store to log out of your acc.)

                      Disclaimer: Steam Database is not affiliated with Valve in any way. We are a community run website.

                      An hour ago, Steam users started seeing incorrect information on the Steam Store, as if they were signed into someone else's account.

                      There is no official confirmation from Valve yet, so we can only speculate as to why this issue happened. Valve is known to use Akamai as their CDN and Varnish for caching. Our theory is that a caching misconfiguration in one of these components has caused Steam to incorrectly serve rendered and cached pages intended for a single user only.

                      This issue means that users’ private information such as email address, billing address, and sometimes credit card details are at risk. As far as we know, this issue is read-only, and no one is able to perform any actions involving your account on your behalf.

                      To protect yourself, we strongly recommend completely avoiding visiting any Steam store links. This includes visiting the Steam store using the Steam client.

                      This is not a hack or a DDoS attack. This is highly likely to be a misconfiguration in one of Valve’s caching layers.

                      At the time of this writing, the Steam store is inaccessible. We can only assume Valve is currently working on fixing the issue.

                      If you used a PayPal account and had the details saved, you can unlink your account by logging on PayPal.com and going to Settings and Preapproved payments under the Payment options heading.

                      Going forward, we strongly encourage you not to store your billing information on the Steam store. Valve have proven multiple times that they’re unable to keep their security standards to a high level.
                      The stories where people claim people purchased items on their accounts are not confirmed. It is possible they are fake.

                        • Thankfully I am only using debit cards to shop online, therefore they are basicaly empty when I do not want to buy anything and they do not have access to any of my important bank accounts.

                          Lmao really.

Some of us have been here from the beta, watching this mess of a game getting developed. And you STILL are surprised when you are fed shit. [...]
