Steam game keys and user details stolen after hack



A known vulnerability found in older vBulletin forum software, which powers the Steam's community site, allowed the hacker to access the Steam databases.

A little over nine million keys used to redeem and activate games on the Steam platform were stolen by a hacker who breached a gaming news site last month.

The user data stolen from the forum includes full names, usernames, scrambled passwords, email addresses, dates of birth, join dates, avatars, Steam usernames, and user activity data. Facebook access tokens were stolen for those who signed in with their social account.
