Reports indicate that website may have been hacked early this morning with website redirects being sent to hacking website, Fknowned.com. While it’s not clear who perpetrated the act, Kotaku's report indicated that the Fknowned.com website was down earlier with the following message.
Fkn0wned Forum is currently unavailable In lights of someone crediting us for the recent breaches of steam forums, the board is offline. Fkn0wned is not responsible.
For now, the Steam forums remain offline with a maintenance message and no official word on the alleged events. Given that Valve offers free-to-play MMOGs support along with a number of other MMOGs and online games through their Steam platform; we figured it might be a good idea to urge our readers to change their passwords as a precaution. Given the year that we've been having you can never be too careful.
Update: Valve's Gabe Newell confirms Steam breach and offers details.
