Wow. This makes me fear about Steam and D2D... Sad to see hackers are now targeting gamers.

Quite a few 'PC Gamers' were happy when PS3 users couldn't play online and had their personal information hacked. It'll only be a matter of time before the PC crowd will be on the receiving end. That's what people get for Schadenfreude.

I'm quite concerned.

If you have any of the Dirt series and haven't signed up for ther forums, you should be ok. Codemasters uses Games for Windows Live (UGH!) for all online interactions.
