My steam account almost hacked....

My steam account almost hacked....

Postby FlarePhoenix » Tue Oct 17, 2017 7:57 pm

So anywho, I haven't logged into my steam account for over a year(last Halloween I bought RE0 hd), and I thought why not see anything new to get. Well according to my email account, there was over a 100 attempts to access my steam account.....lucky for me it wasn't breached so I'm good. Fun fact I only have 10ish games(will list later) and like 24$ on my gift card left. Did the only smart thing, and change my PW on steam. Who would of thought that a 5letter code that randomly changes after one attempt could hold off hackers.

So here is my game list

Resident evil 5&6
Batman Arkham trilogy (no knight)
Shantae pirate curse
Valdis something something something
Back to future telltale game

(Games I got but haven't played)
Resident evil 0
Shantae half genie
Another game I can't remember...

Always check often, never know when this could happen to youuuuuuuuuuuu.

Yeah ive gotten like 3 emails saying this, people trying to access my account with the correct password from russia, china brazil... only mobile authentication saved my ass

Crazy, i dont know how or why. The only place i even have my steam name posted is here, just change passwords and use mobile authentication. If it happens again i'll have to just set everything to private and go off the radar lmao

Changing your Steam password is about as effective as changing the lock on a goddamn screen door. Steam often comes from leaky Valves.

I don't have a smartphone, mine wasn't even made in this decade, so I hope my tablet will do.

Nah I say more like a rubix cube, forces the hackers to bot try again to get it. Takes a minute to change the PW, while takes them longer to get it. The earliest email I got was in May and i had my account for 3 years+ so yeah. Also steam comes from heated water, and cracks\gaps in wet pipes.....but I did enjoy your word play right there.

I had mine Hacked Ages Ago they took everything including accessing My Bank Account They took the money too. Luckily My bank realised after they transferred the money into some offshore account it was above the maximum allowed without my verbal and internal (In the Bank) Authorisation.
They subsequently closed the account and re-opened a new one with full initial balance prior to the transaction.!
Same for my old Email and online Shopping accounts all thanks to a Hacker on STEAM.
I Do Not Trust Steam or Any Online Gaming anymore.

Got this one recently. Much like everyone else: mobile steam guard saved me. Hopefully they don't sniff out my email though.

My account was nearly hacked, too. In fact they guessed the name and password but fortunately Steam's two pass authentification worked and since the hacker don't have access to my email I could change mail and password before he/she can steal my account.

The mobiles Authenticator works till you lose your phone or your # and then can't reset it.
Thankfully it seems they have added steps to recover it now.
