This weekend, Steam surpassed the 12 million concurrent users milestone.

The 12.3 million figure was reached on January 3rd, with Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fallout 4, and Grand Theft Auto V being the most played titles at the time.

Over the Christmas period, a denial of service (DDOS) attack caused a caching issue with Steam that resulted in private user information being exposed, including billing addresses, the last four digits of Steam Guard phone numbers, purchase histories, the last two digits of credit card numbers, and email addresses.
