Crooks Selling Steam Data For $15

Fifteen bucks sure seems pretty damn cheap for a data dump containing Steam accounts with user names and passwords.

A report published in the Guardian newspaper claims that its reporters have seen criminals advertising Steam data for sale on a Russian dark web forum; a full log of all data stolen by botnet - probably including usernames and passwords - goes for just $15. Steam has become a very high value target, because it's so easily bought and sold. The best part? Some of you are cooperating, willingly or otherwise.
