Steam Security Problems?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm currently going through steam tech support because a hacker somehow obtained my password and changed my email, Am I the only one that feels my email shouldn't be able to be changed without being able to logged into my email to verify it? Or atleast answering my security questions? Thank god my credit card has no money on it, However they have access to over 290 games.


I've always felt steam had security issues and never hit it right on the money, What is your opinions on what they should do?

With Steam Guard (which was automatically enabled for me a long time ago) any time logging in from a new computer it forces you to enter a security code sent to the email linked to the account. So either the person who hacked it had access to your email, or for some reason you didn't have Steam Guard enabled.

Why do you feel Steam has security issues? Did you ever verify your email address with them in the first place?
