Statement from Gabe on steam hacking

Most who use Steam for gaming probably saw Gabe's official, legal department-passed response to the hacking investigation last fall.  They are still working with law enforcement to put the issue to bed.  You can read it all here.  In short, hackers got people's encrypted credit card information for transactions from 2004-2008.  So if you're like us and your credit card is renewed every year it's probably ok.  But keep an eye on your credit card transactions just in case.

Interestingly, there was an audio recording released by the group "Anonymous" of a FBI conference call where they actually were talking about an individual involved in the case.   It's on Youtube, rather boring too and doesn't release any top-secret stuff.  But overall its interesting to see how seriously they take it and how young often the perpetrators are.
