  2. Yea in the same couple of weeks I got an e-mail from Sony then Codemasters and then the other day Sega :mad: I have already changed my passwords to very random codes for my Paypal and E-mail. (not that that will help if the database gets hacked but oh well).

    I can haz cookie?

    My bet is that its the same hackers that hacked psn, codemasters and sega.
  4. All info that Steam has on me is my name, address, and the fact that I like to purchase games via PayPal. You can find all that by simply googling, lol. And now with the Steam Guard in place, I have zero worries for my Steam account, or Steam in general.

    PayPal is trickier, but that's a huge company dealing with money exclusively, so I would think they have their bases covered.

    Same here Senad. I'm also pretty sure that PayPal, if it were targeted, would deal with anything of this kind in much there same way a traditional bank would. not doing so would be too detrimental to their business.

    No system can ever be 100% safe but that's life.

    Guys use Prepaid Credit cards when you buy online. I never use my actual card.

  8. Well i use cradit cards for any online purchases and my card secures the payment. it means that if someone uses my card details without my consent its covered. In fact youll find its better cover than if you go into a shop and buy stuff.

    As for paypal it has been hacked before but not in a massive amount its just individuals thats why you do not hear of it.
  9. It's more than just gaming sites. The CIA, US Senate, NHS, UK Soca, Spanish Government, as well as others, have all been attacked in some form over the last couple of months.

    In other news, a man has been arrested in the UK for being responsible for the Sony attacks at least: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-13859868
