Valve Offering Free Portal 2 and DOTA 2 After Security Breach?

Posted on Friday, November 11 @ 16:42:42 Eastern by Josh_Laddin
Yesterday we reported on Steam's security breach in which their database was accessed by hackers, who made off with encrypted personal information such as passwords, email and billing addresses, and possibly credit card numbers.

Today there's more news, but it's of the nicer variety. From an email that was sent by Gabe Newell, Valve is going to be "rolling out some free copies of DOTA 2 and Portal 2 soon". It's not clear from the email whether that move is meant to appease customers worried about the leak, but with the timing of it one would guess that's the case.


It's also important to stress again that any information accessed was heavily encrypted and Valve doesn't have cause to believe that we'll need to change our passwords or credit card info. That kind of a claim is usually small comfort, but Valve has a history of transparency and honesty with its customers.
