Steam Database Compromised

It has been confirmed that the Steam Database has been compromised. If anyone has used Steam, you should change your password (for the forums).

http://kotaku.com/5856975/steam-forums-apparently-hacked

This just re-emphasizes that every account should have a unique login and password. Please do not re-use passwords (ok, I know we all do it) if you want your account to remain secure. If you are not sure that your password for this site has never been used anywhere else, please go change it now...

Thanks for the announcement!...It happened that I received an e-mail yesterday from Steam to put a code to retrieve my password...I have not used steam in ages so I just disregard that e-mail message because I am not even planning to use Steam anyway...I quit long time ago.
Thanks Supermanox for your advise!

Thanks for the heads up once again, but I never used the forums on steam.
