Valve Software says hackers may have accessed a backup file of Steam customer transaction data during a security breach last November.

"In a news post, Valve co-founder and managing director Gabe Newell says that the backup file included transactions from between 2004 and 2008, adding that it contained user names and email addresses, as well as encrypted billing addresses and credit card information," The H Security reports.

"However, this data did not include Steam account passwords, which were reportedly not accessed," the article states.
