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

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.
