Valve Belatedly Fixes “Steam” Security Flaw

Video game publisher Valve recently fixed a critical security flaw in the organization’s popular Steam platform. The company was first informed of the bug two years ago. At this time, a separate unfixed bug remains an issue on Steam that was first reported over a year ago.

“I think they are just lazy to fix client-side problems,” security researcher Bien Pham told The Daily Swig. “My vulnerability is easy to fix (at least I think it is). When it comes to servers, especially their side, they respond quite quickly, so I don’t think there should be any reason for them to take a long time to resolve client-side bugs.”

At this time, Valve has not responded to any requests for comment from The Daily Swig.

Steam is a digital video game service that was created by Valve. Valve Software is an American video game developer, publisher, and digital distribution company based out of Bellevue, Washington.
