So what did Valve do to compensate their customers?
Did they even apologize?
They apologized and probably reimbursed those affected, but surprisingly the number of affected users was very small compared to the number of overall users. There was no free games or anything but that's probably because this happens hardly ever unlike certain other online services from other companies.
>reimbursed those affected
But nobody lost money. There were no fraudulent transactions made. At worst some people saw somebody else's email address and the last few digits of their credit card number.
hahha XD BTFO! SONYBROS GET IN HERE WE WON haha >it's not fair meme!! REEEEE literally REDDIT: the cuckpost, newfag detected fuck my asshole and cream my nigger butt. CONSOLE WAR FALSELAGGING ENGAGE! mustards, m i right guys?! woooo NEVER EVER! suck my bloody diarrhea out of my AIDS asshole with a straw.
oh wait, that's completely reasonable - they contacted the affected users, end of story, end of this fucking thread.
Lol, Sonyggers in complete damage control after finding out they got nothing.
>b-but muh one free day
No actual info was leaked in that case though, it was just rumoured.
The last 4 digits were available freely in the steam debacle which is pretty dangerous considering it can be used to verify someone's identity.
hahha ABSOLUTELY BTFO! who /MUSTARD/ here? who /NINTENDO/ here? hey guys, fucking video games lolrofl, let's get a nice console war going on IN THIS THREAD BOYS, 900p 30fps AM I RIGHT?
CAN I GET SOME YOU-POSTING GOING IN THIS BITCH? HEHEHEHHE
>it's ok because Sony's hack was worse
>Frequent service interruptions; can't even handle Christmas' traffic.
>Exposes its customers' confidential information
>Not even an apology
>Service only gets taken down by a joint effort of professional hackers
>Patches all the security vulnerabilities
>No service interruption since 2011
>Apologized and gave discount / fee service day to its customers.
PC gaming: not even once.
Maintenance interruptions don't count and they're to be expected in a professionally designed data network.
I bet Valve doesn't even clean the dirt from their four or five servers.
lol, dude why do you feel the need to protect a company this hard? Do you think they care what a bunch of anon people on the internet say about them. I don't get you fanboys, you act like a company has feelings.
>literally cannot play online for a MONTH
>LE PLAYUU STATION IS LE BEST
It's not about feelings.
>Company creates things you like so naturally you talk good things about it and debunk false things about it.
>By doing the latter two you convince more people to buy products from said company
>The company earns money and uses said money to create more things you're going to like
It's not that hard.
So your doing work for free? Alright pham
>Still beating a dead horse.
2011. That was five years ago. Five. It's in the past. It will never happen again.
Meanwhile Steam shits the bed every weekend, but it's okay when the fat fuck gaben does it.
>suspends steam service
>suspended "steam service" is literally the shop, and everything else works.
I guess if I wanted to buy something in that particular hour shop went belly up, it would affect me.
they are privately contacting identified affected users. there were supposedly about thirty thousand total, but that's basically pure gossip. they're going to be very private about this because of the likelihood of damage claims over it.
I'm a steam user and I know it is not out for the entirety of the weekend. Good job clearly not being a Steam user. Are you bored because PSN is down for another week and need to shitpost?
5 year steam user here. Have never had a single issue launching my games, playing online or making a purchase at any point in time. Sometimes the chat/instant messaging service will go offline for a couple minutes. That's it.
My credit card info was used to buy a ton of shit earlier this month, including a Twitch streamer of all things. Only use it myself for Amazon, Steam, PSN, & gas.
Can /v/ guess which company compromised my information?
>Meanwhile PSN shits the bed for one month or weeks at a time.
>PSN always kicks me off at exactly 12:30am every night regardless of what I'm doing whether it's playing a game or watching YouTube
PSN is the worst service
I don't even need to prove it. PSN goes down everytime.
You think I would just lie about this sort of thing on the internet?
>Steam leaks the billing address, the last four digits of Steam Guard phone numbers, purchase history, the last two digits of credit card numbers, and/or email addresses of roughly 34k out of their millions of users as a result of a DoS attack abusing a config error
>They officially apologize via their own website and news sites
>WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH FUCKING COMPENSATE ME THIS IS BULLSHIT
No idea. Banks don't really care either. Just cancelled most of the charges & refund whatever slipped through when it finishes posting. Looks like just twitch so far which was one of the first hundred or so charges attempted in the hour it happened.
Oh shit, you're back! I still remember when you placed your address in gifs. That one with the boob bouncing girls was cool.
This is the only video you need to see to understand what happened.
why would you expect reimbursement for an event that didn't affect 99.999% of people, including yourself?
