Half-Life 2 Code Stolen

According to various sources, the source code for Half-Life 2 has been stolen and made available for download on the Internet. Some claim that it even included the CD-key authentication code and the Steam code. If that is true, Valve could have some serious problems to contend with. Counterstrike had enough cheaters as it was. Hopefully we'll hear something offical soon.

The Master comments: Update! There's a post on the HL2 forums indicating that this is an actual theft of the HL2 source, done via some very insidious hacking of Valve's computer systems. Ouch.

A.T. Hun comments: Newell believes that someone used a . . . wait for it! . . . Outlook exploit to gain access to his box. The good news is that I just happen to have moderator points on Slashdot right now. I'm using them to mod down idiots who are posting links to the source.
