Mmmm...coincidence? Either way, if the steam forums are hacked it's not bad because the forum accounts are not linked to the Steam accounts.

Also, steam forums do go down now and then, for no apparent reason.

There's nothing really useful to obtain there (unless you have people who used their steam id and password for the same thing), it's just a breeding ground for trolls.

Why is it when something goes offline, they've suddenly been "hacked"?

Like what? Is that how the gaming community thinks nowadays?

No 'possibly' about it, they were hacked by fkn0wned and spam emails were sent to members.

Only a plonker would have their log in details for the forums the same as their actual steam login anyway.

Someone got into an admin account via an exploit in VB and started putting stickies for aimbots and whatnot up everywhere, so Valve shut down the forums for the time being.
