Steam reported a general cache error earlier this morning where users were able to see through account details of random users. Personal account data and activity was been visible, no intellectual loss or data compromising has been revealed as of yet.
Positively, no falsified purchases or fraud has been made as the transaction page would alert users with, “You can’t do this transaction on this account”. And making matters much settled, an official Steam representative also responded on the matter and confirmed of re-arrangements being processed.
Steam is back up and running without any known issues. 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.
Earlier this year, Steam faced a major market glitch where tons of user accounts and transactions were made at unbelievable prices and the moderators tried their best to roll-back the transactions for that current period. But, we are happy that this cache error wasn’t a part of the threatening done by LizardSquad or PhantomSquad who announced that they’d take down the entire PSN and Xbox Live networks on Christmas. Ironically, Steam faced a hour down-time on the Christmas evening.
