My friend informed me. When you go into 'Account Information' via Steam Client, it leads you to other peoples pages.

I looked at it and there is another guys page named 'minkey***' and it has saved credit card information, which is not mine. I can see his mail address clearly. Also if that random guy has money in Steam Wallet, I think you can spend it too. Mine has $0 at all.

I think big security issue is happening right now. You can check it with Steam Client. I am not gonna upload a screenshot because I dont want to spoil that guys e-mail address or other info.

Mod edit: Dont post usernames

  • No changes can be made to the effected account, no purchases can be made. Any evidence to the country is, as of yet, unsubstantiated.
  • It's been advised to not access Steam URLs, including the client, until we have more information.
  • Do not post account names you see, huge security risk.






I'll update this post with more information going forward.

I was in the indie sale thread and started ctrl-clicking on the store pages in post #2, and I kept ending up in other people's accounts. WTF is going on here?

Wow, what? Where can I see "Account Information"? I can only find Account Details by clicking the username next to my available funds, but that page doesn't load (302 warning).

Same for me.

In addition, the language for the store front is chaning at every click and I can't revert it back to mine.

I just noticed this as well here. I was on a game page in the store and noticed it said two of "my friends" own this game already but I have no idea who they are.

store.steampowered.com in the browser also leads me to the Russian site, with no way to change it back to German / English.

I budget my entertainment/media/booze to a separate card that has very little loaded at any given time, thankfully. If I lose something or the card info gets sold I won't lose much.

It might be that if you're logged in other people can't use your account. So going offline might not be a good idea.

It could also be the opposite.
