Mmmm ... hashed and salted passwords ....

Maybe I should refrain from checking the forums on an empty stomach. ;)

Glad to hear there are no problems!

Quinn wanted to butter them, too, but we thought that was just a bridge too far.

For anyone wondering, this is why I didn't get much done today. :/

As if the unending swarm of bots wasn't enough, now there's hacking attempts going on?

.....Ugh.   I think that sums up my thoughts on it.

What if the real Chris has been replaced by this diablolical imposter? Are we sure he's still there?

Of course he has not been replaced by a robot.
Ha. Ha. That's funny.

A modest Raptor?

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Is it bad to say when I first saw this topic (before reading the blog), I'd thought it was an actual "In-Game" Hacking attempt that went horribly (read: hysterically) awry.

Sorry you guys ended up with all that noise.
... and then we'll have cake.

I demand investigation into whether it was Russia behind these attacks! D:<

Seriously though, I swear I knew that Steam's 2-factor authentication had a hole in it. I refused to use it, and told them I thought there was a gap, but they refused to believe me swearing that it was secure.

Jerks. Should have listened to me and this wouldn't have happened to Chris.

The 2FA itself did fine. Actually it was key in our being able to respond as quickly as we did.

But 2FA is only one piece of steam's login security.
