Gaming Hype

All about Gaming and it's hype!

Steam user forums hacked, taken offline

Unsatisfied with merely enabling cheating in Steam games with unauthorized code, it would appear that a group called FknOwned took its hackery a step further, hacking the Steam user forum to insert an ad for its own site, which promises hacks, along with “general discussion sections, hacking tutorials and tools, porn, free giveaways and much more.” NeoGAF user imek reported that the same message came in as an email from Steam.

We say “it would appear” because we didn’t witness the hack for ourselves; rather than allow a hacking site to advertise itself prominently, Valve has taken the forums down “for maintenance.”
