So apparently Steam had a code malfunction where viewing your own information gave you the information of other people.

Discuss.

It's NOT as scary as it seems. I think if you have steam guard on your account you shouldn't worry that much. It's just cached profile pages. 

Some creep may have gotten your account name and phone number, but you can't change those.

Edit: derped my words

That must have been a scary few hours for a lot of people.. I don't have my phone number on steam, nor do I have any credit card or paypal info.. I just top up using the top up cards.. that way I never spend more than I can afford..

I haven't used steam for a few months. Luckily the only info there is an old credit card number that has long since been expired/terminated.

I just had around £24 in my steam wallet so it wouldn't have been the end of the world if I'd lost that.. i mean I wouldn't have been happy about it.. but I wouldn't have lost any sleep over it either.. My account was fine though.

I'm hearing rumors that the issue has been fixed, though I heard this from unconfirmed sources.
