So right now the humble bundle has Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Ermergerddin, Company of Heroes, CoH Opposing Fronts, CoH Tales of Valor. and if you pay over the average (5.70! ) you get Saints Row: The Third. Hort de fork. The catch is that this bundle is windows only and steam keys only but still. Hort de fork.

THQ is just looking to pay off as much debt as they can at this point. Don't see a future for the company, that is why they are basically giving the games away. But hey, you can always pay the red cross for the favor.

Wow, I never knew about these... Thank you very much for making a thread on this. Donated $5.75 and got saints row 3 with it too. Feel kind of like a cheap ass, but hey, they offered it.

I wonder if I can gift Darksiders as I already own it. 65p for all of these games? NICE :D I was considering getting Metro during the steam sale, but this beats all of the Steam sales by MILES.

I believe you can gift the initial bundle (1 unique key) and the Saint's Row: The Third which has a separate key.  I don't think you can gift any other games individually.

Nope, you can't :( For 65p, though, I won't complain that I get Darksiders twice haha.

Weirdly enough, I had some guy add me after I bought this pack who said that he knew my account username and password (which he then proved). Fortunately, he advised me to change my passwords/security questions as he said if he could hack into my account, so could others, and they wouldn't be too forgiving. I'm not sure whether Humble has anything to do with this but just be careful guys! I was literally inches away from having my Steam account stolen and I have over 100 games on there :/

I know this is off-topic, but felt I should mention this - do you have Steam Guard active? Theoretically this should help prevent people from hijacking your account. It's basically a similar type of account protection as GW2 uses, in that if it's active and someone tries to log into your account from a computer that you haven't registered/allowed previously... it will block the login attempt, send an e-mail to your registered e-mail and you would have to click a link in the e-mail to allow the login. This obviously isn't 100% fool-prool, but it will help against most attempts to hijack your account if your login details get compromised. It obviously won't protect you if they have access to your e-mail account, or can somehow spoof the required identification from your computer (don't ask me what they use to id your computer specifically, I don't know the answer).

More details: Steam Guard

This is something I'd recommend all user's of Steam use. It might cause some minor troubles if you switch computers a lot, but it can help keep your account safe - and is 100% free to use.

As for what happened to you, there are different issue's/causes here - your machine could be infected with spy/mal-ware and you got keylogged via that, your have a steam forum account which has the same login username & password as your steam account - Steam Forums were hacked quite a few months back which might explain how they had your details, Someone has managed to hack/crack Steam (though why they would add you and tell you... I couldn't say), Someone cracked/hacked steam and leakes/spread the details and you ran across a good Samaritan who told you about it, someone randomly guessed your details and got it right... just to name a few.

Seeing as you don't have to log into steam at all when buying from humble bundle (please correct me if I'm wrong), I'd say the issue here is not really with them. When you purchase off them, you should be provided working keys that you then add to steam. So technically, they should never see your steam username and password at all. I'd check your system for malware, spyweare, keyloggers, change your password, make sure your steam account login is different to your steam forum login (if you have one), etc.

Have a moderation related issue? Send me a PM

Thanks Kamatsu! Yeah, they said they had the information from a database 2 weeks ago, so perhaps I jumped to the conclusion of it being Humble without really thinking about it. Either way, since this is Steam related, I thought I should warn people just in-case they find their accounts have been compromised :)
