Somebody who just wants to play counterstrike? Because that's all that they did when they had it, and they played it nonstop. In fact when I took the account back it probably interrupted their game. Not to mention this person added a game to my account as if it were his own.

It's happened more than twice that some russian hackers stole credit card information from the steam servers. If they can steal that I'd bet they can steal either the password itself or factor an equivalent md5 or whatever hash. Trust me when I say this, valve has a terrible security record. On top of what I mentioned, remember how the HL2 source code was stolen? Yeah.

And there's no way in hell I could have been phished, I have never logged into steam except through the client itself.
