    The interesting thing is they appear to be running the latest "v3" version of vB, something I believe Wilders does too.

    Don't be quick to blame vBulletin, maybe Gabe is using gaben as a password again like he did when they got hacked through their email server. :D

    Seriously though might just be a weak password on one of the admin accounts.

    Same here. Valve is such a nice company with a great leader :(

    I'm not happy about this as I have both a PS3 and a Steam account... :mad:
    Twice in one year sucks. At least Valve was smart enough to have encrypted the info. I guess I will see if the bank cancels my card again.
