Valve, best known for Steam and CS:GO, has been hit by a massive hacker attack. A big problem.
lately PCForum as I mentioned it A very serious hacking attack hit Valve’s servers, during which confidential files of well-known and important games were uploaded to the Internet. Although Valve is best known for Steam, it is also the developer and publisher of successful games such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life or Portal.
An important component of the games has been uploaded to the Internet.
During the leak, of course, not only the three aforementioned games were leaked, but also secret elements of titles such as development elements for the first version of Team Fortress 2 or Left 4 Dead. Recently, a volume of more than 61 GB was released on the network, which contains characters, weapons, 3D models, textures, and even animations and tracks that appear in games.

The most interesting part of the full leak is that the files reveal how the games were built during development, and we can even see the unfinished items in the games.
I haven’t seen anyone look at the gate section of a valve leak, so I did
I haven’t found much yet except for leftovers from hl2 ep1…
But also this early cell model?

So far, though, Valve doesn’t seem particularly excited about the leak. It is not yet known what the planned steps are, nor how important these old files are to the company. Even worse, if these files are stolen, there is potentially a very important security hole that could cause serious problems for Valve and even for Steam users.
