unfortunately,
complete AMD promotion key list leaked to internet
(around 3 millions DIRT 3 keys)

i assume that proper course action will be simply blacklist every key
and remove them silently from accounts then tell users to re-register new ones

or ... do nothing

in short never put .sql database with game keys on webserver
where simple missing .htaccess can leak it



Holy shit! What the fuck was AMD thinking leaving them so unsecured? I feel bad for Codemaster. They must be furious. Don't post any keys here either.

A friend of mine snagged one of those codes last night, but he thought they were a giveaway, not leaked. He was pretty stressed out about his Steam account possibly getting banned, but after sending a careful worded message/apology to Valve they just removed the game from his library and all was well.

Still news. It wouldn't be hard to find them anyway.

If Mills wasn't going to say anything chances are that someone else will. Anyway, that's a real bummer for Codemasters. On the brightside, the game's been out for a while instead of launch day so it could've been much worse.

At least Valve has been removing the game from people's accounts who have used any of those keys.

No one would have bothered stealing the keys.

AMD Giveaway(7/20) Steam(9/5)  
 
I redeemed a code on my account yesterday morning with no knowledge of the 9/5 information. A Russian approached me, and only wanted about $6 in Team Fortress 2 items for the code. I am absolutely irritated.

My rule is I never trade or get given gifts by strangers on steam. Not worth getting screwed over later on.
