Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
big if true.
Edit: apparently its a repost from 2018 - https://www.ign.com/articles/valve-counter-strike-source-code-leak-no-danger

Well, apparently this leak was known since 2018, but it was well contained up to this point.

so, from my understanding of the photo people are able to change the ingame text

how does that allow people to hack steam accounts?

So with source code, you have total freedom. You can change all sorts of things like add ability to freeze a player in place or render maps in wireframe or change reload speed, add some telemetry-collecting traces on other players etc. You compile the project and you get your very own, modded .exe

In theory, you can still play on the same servers but with your juiced-up executable.
In practice, you maybe can do some juvenile shit like put overlays on people's screens and do some griefing but to hack into someone's account you would probably need Steam's source code to do that.
