I think I got hacked...

Post by Smithens on Thu Oct 23, 2008 12:05 am

I just got a notification from Steam (or so I think) that a hacker messed up people's steam accounts and they needed my
password and username to verify me in their databanks. I did so without thought, then shortly thereafter I'm booted off Steam, and it said that my account was being logged on elsewhere. Once I could log back in,
I typed in my password and such, then it said that my password was incorrect. pale

I don't know if this is ever gonna get fixed, but you can count on the fact that I won't be on for a while...

Any advice would be appreciated.

Oh shit, why YOU? :/
Well, the rule is "Steam will NEVER ask for your login and password" because they have database, they could get it anytime without asking.
But anyway, have a read: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2347-QDFN-4366

Yeah, I definitely got conned, and I feel real fucking stupid.

I managed to change my Paypal password just in time, and I submitted a report to Steam...

But one thing's for sure: the Smithens account is gone. I doubt I'll ever see it again. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

What games did you have on it? Were these expensive? Or just couple cheap games like Gmod or CSS?

Probably about $100 worth of games.

What do these people do if they can't use my Paypal account?
Do they just start using my Steam account? Play the games that I paid every penny for?

I guess I deserve it, falling for the oldest trick in the book.

I tried that, Steam tells me that they sent it to my email, but I never got it.

It doesn't even matter, they changed my password anyways.

EDIT: Oh, and if I suddenly stop visiting the forums, then I was probably murdered by a crazy hacker,
because they know where I live now.

That hacker changed your Email :/ IMO steam should allow using old email, after changing it, for at least 1 day, so the right account owner has some chance to retrieve his account :/

Good Razz But, will you buy any games, or just make an account to chat?

I'm a bit low on cash... It might wait until I get my next paycheck.

I'll probably just buy HL2 and Gmod for now.

Good News

I appreciate the help you two, but I don't need it.

After going through a lot of sh!t with Customer Support, I managed to get my account back.

Lol that would have been the second time I lost my Steam account (and all its games...).

Like $80 worth of games...

But that was a long time ago. I was young and brash.

This whole thing is embarrassing, I'm tempted to delete it (if I can).
