I've decided to comment on this, having just recovered my account from some @-hole. I think it is becoming a problem. All the posts I've read have shown it a growing concern in the community. Is it just me? Or does anyone else agree?
Let me discuss my account being hijacked. Up until I lost access, I had only three friends on here. I never posted or shared my account information with anyone. I had a seemingly difficult password, it was 12 characters, varying number letter combination.
One day on my way to work I received an email from Steam notifying me that my email change had been accepted. I had never sent in a request to do that. I took it for a spam email. simply because when I was at work I tested my steam access and I was still able to access my account. So I brushed it off. My mistake. After the weekend is when the jack@ss changed everything on my account and removed access. It took a week and a half for Steam to give me access back. When I regained control I toughened my password, changed the information the idiot provided (he is from Japan) and changed my profile name. Another question to everyone, should I change my login ID and perhaps get another email address for the account?
The main reason I am posting this is because today "someone" attempted to change the password on my account. I contacted steam and they told me that it was probably someone else in the community who has a similar login ID. I've looked, and haven't found one. So I have to assume it is @-hole again. Thoughts?
