    Hackers may have obtained a copy of a file of payment transactions

    The file contained 2004 to 2008 user names, email adresses, encrypted billing address and credit card info.

    Hacking is a recurrent topic this days. Valve's Gabe Newell has sent out today a notification recognizing that their Steam system has been compromised by hackers who stolen a big file containing transactions from 2004 to 2008 period.

    So, if you have purchased any items between that dates, your info could be in the wrong hands!
