Hi guys!

So, was just sitting on my computer checking facebook and e-mails and stuff, when a Steam popup appeared saying something like this:

"Your account credentials have expired."

It asked me to log in again. I checked friends and it said the same thing that I need to log in again to access friends. Well I logged in and friends came back online and everything seemed okay.

I did a google search on "your account credentials have expired" and discussions on forums show that it might be related to account hijacking. I instantly changed my password and security question and verified my email and I also thought of asking steam support about this, but when I tried to log in to steam support it said that password or email/account was invalid.

I then tried to put my account name on the "lost password" -section and it said that no such account was found.

I don't know if steam support was buggy or I was just typoing because I'm tired or something but I will try it again once more.

If you get any weird messages via friends from me (website links etc) I strongly suggest not to click them.

I will keep you guys updated on this situation

PS. I don't know if I posted to the right section or not and I don't care right now. Admins move this if you want to.

PPS. I am not drunk  Very Happy

I have been able to log out and back in to the account and so far it seems that I'm still the only owner


The thing that confuses me the most right now ist that steam support says that neither my account nor my e-mail exists in steam services  Rolling Eyes

I'm off to bed now so we'll see how this turns out tomorrow

ok, verified my account, changed the pass, but i cant set the secret question, whenever i copy the verification code from the email i get an error...idk if thats due to my stupidity to enter the code correctly either, but ill try it again some other time...
i just hope this thing was legit...i mean, ive never seen a hijacking attempt that came with an legit looking steam window, and i'd like to have my pass back to normal again ;)

i bet antisankari just stirred up the sh*t while steam really was only confirming stuff Very Happy
no mate i kid, thanks again for reporting

Antisankari sappin' mah steam account!

Ok, it seems to me that I still have my account. This thing spooked me because there was a discussion on steam forums about this thing being a hijack attempt and someone had infact lost his account.

He sent me a threatening PM last night: "all your account information are belong to us".
It's the only explenation that makes any sense.

That appeared to me too a few days too, nothing happened since. Never thought about it being an hijack attempt. I just thought it was steam renewing the login data.

I'd view anything like that as suspicious, no matter where it comes from...
