Security Flaw, Possible Data Breach in Steam Platform Game

A whistleblower and leak has been exposed centered around the Steam platform game Town of Salem. The data breach is in preliminary stages of investigation but leads to fundamental flaws in an insecure online system.
SEATTLE - Dec. 28, 2018 - PRLog -- Leakprobe analysts detected a possible novel leak today in the Town of Salem video game that is playable over Steam. A tip was passed onto him from an anonymous player who uses an account on the servers (this information was removed to further anonymize the tip) -- although an amateur video gamer, this player is well educated in computer security protocol and although relevant information pertinent to this case was at first made publicly available regarding his career, due to the high profile nature the whistleblower wanted this personally identifiable information to be kept anonymous.

Of his expertise on the situation, the gamer says, "There's a big security flaw on their end either way. Either their login process is insecure or their system is hacked completely." His account's information was breached on 12/27/2018 by a user using a Google mail login in Japan. The stipulations of this data breach correlate with the gamer's speculation that Town of Salem's user database has indeed been leaked (the database is not currently available on Leakprobe's leak database). The other possibility is that the login system is completely insecure and brute force attacks are successful on the vulnerable system.

Town of Salem, a "Werewolf" style role playing game available on the Steam platform, was informed about the data breach by the said gamer on their public Discord channel; however, the administrators paid no attention to his claims. In fact, he was spurned as causing trouble and the accusations openly denied despite tagging of proper administrators. Certainly this is not an isolated incident of poor customer service with Steam applications.

As further news outbreaks about this update, there are sure to be press releases from higher up management including representatives from the Town of Salem administration as well as Steam platform staff. More information will be added to the Leakprobe blog at when updated.
