Valve Says "No Unauthorized Actions" Were Enabled On Improperly Viewed Steam Accounts

For those who managed to miss this, it’s yet another reminder that no company is immune to careless security mistakes and that you should be vigilant with what kind of stored information you entrust to any entity.

"Steam is back up and running without any known issues," we were told via email. "As a result of a configuration change earlier today, a caching issue allowed some users to randomly see pages generated for other users for a period of less than an hour. This issue has since been resolved. We believe no unauthorized actions were allowed on accounts beyond the viewing of cached page information and no additional action is required by users."
