Change your everything. In short, the hackers had access to a database containing a wide array of information. Encoded credit card numbers, hashed/salted passwords for Steam and the Steam Forum, usernames, emails, and games you've downloaded.

It's like Sony's embarrassment all over again, only steam is handling it much better, by not waiting goddamn weeks to let people know. And I have a card tied to my account too T_T;

As do I. If you say you lost it or something, the banks and companies are usually happy to replace them. At least, they are in my experience.
