Gaming souk Steam spews credit card, personal info in Xmas Day security meltdown


Re: Somebody went shopping at Argos and it wasn't me


No card has not been out my or my wife's hand at all

Given the timescale it all points to steam

Unless Argos retail, Tesco retail,Aldi or Lidl have been hacked

Which is highly unlikely and the fact they waited until the 27'th to use the details makes me think they had a conscience but the lure was to much to try their luck.

I did try local Police re a card skimming device and no dice there.

Not a home hack as PayPal and the bank accounts are all untouched

So we're back to steam and yeah the card was on there last transaction Nov 14'th for a Star Wars game for my son.

I've been in and wiped just eat as well today and they had expired cards on file...
