Default Re: Steam account stolen

Unless this person has some kind of magical keylogger that can survive replacing a hard disk (I've upgraded to an SSD since I last used steam) and absolutely does not give a crap about e.g. my bank account information with a few thousand dollars in it and remains untouched, I'd say valves servers have been compromised.

There's simply no other conceivable way that this person could have obtained my account information. It wouldn't surprise me, given valves track record, if somebody out there is cherry picking accounts that haven't been touched in a while and have the particular games that this person wants. If I hadn't received that confirmation email I wouldn't have even been aware that my account had been compromised.
