Steam Forums Compromised

What a world we live in, eh? Today, thanks to a “hacker intrusion,” Steam forums were taken offline. As of right now, they’re still down.

The results of the hack? A banner advertising the cheat community Fkn0wned and, according to Reddit users, spam emails and redirects to the Fkn0wned forums. In any event, Steam users can rest easy: there has been no indication that the actual Steam accounts have been hacked.

Fkn0wned is shirking responsibility, claiming this to be the work of a single individual, not the site as a whole.

Seeing as I’ve never heard of Fkn0wned, a little advertising might not be a bad idea. Let’s just go about it in a more professional way, shall we?
