Valve Fixes Steam’s Recent Caching Issue

Recently, a caching issue occured on Steam and a limitied financial information was leaked.

To explain what happened briefly, when you went to look at your account on Steam, it would show another person’s information and this exposed stuff like the final couple of digits of credit cards, full PayPal e-mail addresses and purchase history. Valve issued a statement saying that the platform is back online and they believe “no unauthorized actions were allowed on accounts beyond the viewing of cached page information and no additional action is required by users.”

“Steam is back up and running without any known issues. As a result of a configuration change earlier today, a caching issue allowed some users to randomly see pages generated for other users for a period of less than an hour. This issue has since been resolved. We believe no unauthorized actions were allowed on accounts beyond the viewing of cached page information and no additional action is required by users.”

Just in case, if you want to feel a little bit safer, change your account’s password.
