DLH 'hack' menaces gamers

A popular games forum has apparently been hacked, resulting in records for more than three million accounts and many more Steam keys being stolen.

The forum for DLH was allegedly compromised, and a copy of the data uploaded to the LeakedSource breach notification service. In addition to user account details – including weakly MD5-hashed passwords – the hackers were able to get millions of Steam game keys that users had been sharing through the forum, it is claimed.

The hacker responsible for the reported theft is apparently the same person responsible for an earlier compromise of a Dota 2 forum that resulted in the theft of nearly two million user account records. ®
