    Nobody said it would be possible, but we might actually have a leak worse than the Half-Life 2 leak from 2003. As of today, several of Valve's projects have been leaked, including the source code to Team Fortress 2 and CS:GO. All of these things (and more) were posted on 4chan as a torrent file.

    With the source code being out in the wild, remote code execution is possible, leaving your computer vulnerable just by playing any Source multiplayer games. To anyone who:
    • Wants to keep their Steam account safe (with speculations that the API has been hacked, unconfirmed)
    • Opened / extracted / downloaded the contents of the torrent file
    • Played Team Fortress 2 or CS:GO today
    1. Either delete or archive the torrent's contents right now, we don't know if it's malicious in any way.
    2. Log out from Steam and enable the 2FA check on your phone.
    3. Under any sirconstances, DO NOT play Team Fortress 2 or CS:GO, since those are the main games that may already have very dangerous exploits active.
    4. If you are unsure, disconnect your computer from the internet or isolate it. In worst cases, unplug your router.
    A readup was created by @JaycieErysdren on Twitter. I'd recommend you to give that a read instead, as a lot of bullcrap is being spread around already. We don't know the true facts yet.
    Can this get any worse than it already is?

    This could get interesting. Do like a good source code leak too.

    I shall await a cursory analysis of the code as I am way too lazy to bother doing that myself right now.

    Analysis of the anti cheat is something I should be interested to see, though I also imagine that it will probably be more basic.
