Steam Announces Skyrim is Available Today, and they were Hacked…

Anxious to download the Elderscroll saga’s latest amazing looking installment?

And who isn’t?

Just change your password first.

Steam announced yesterday through the “Latest News” section of the Steam client that they were compromised on November 6th. At first Steam thought only the forums were defaced, but doing a thorough investigation they found that their database holding user account information and encrypted credit cards was compromised:

So if you have a Steam account, keep an eye on your credit card statement and change your Steam passwords.

Hopefully this will not lead to an extended game network outage like Sony users have experienced.
