"A computer-security expert said the implications could be more calamitous. Someone who finds a vulnerability in the code could exploit the flaw and possibly destroy computers connected to the game online, said Geoff Shively, chief technical officer of PivX Labs, a network-security company that specializes in game software.

That's so fucking stupid I don't even want to begin to discuss how technically illiterate & ignorant that fucking shit is.
Who the fuck is PivX anyway? Have you ever heard of them? What piece of shit bullshit Y2K bullshit are they talking about now? Oh give me a fucking break. Someone has the source code to HL2 not steam.
What a bunch of shit. I've heard some tall tales in my life but this one really takes the cake. PATHETIC journalism.
Let's say you had the source code & you were a coder, the most you could do would be to make your own game or devise some fag ass cheat that would be wiped out within a week by Valve's Steam. STEAM doesn't need to wait 3 months to put out a patch to fix a whole bunch of shit so that people aren't pissed at the company for throwing out patch after patch, STeam is a never ending patch & we won't care if there is a patch every fucking week because we won't see it & we won't have to think about it.
THis is all smoke and mirrors because STEAM didn't work right away & Valve wants their fucking money big time without the publishers.
Has anyone, ANYONE, seen anything on the net about The HL2 source code? I mean this is HUGE HUGE HUGE!!! when the doom3 alpha leaked, anyone that cared got it. Do you have the HL2 source code? 1/10 of the people that post here are faggot ass warez fuckers. Do you warez people have access to HL2 source code?
I think it doesn't exist & this is all a bunch of shit! A media nightmare lie!!!!
I say this is a coverup because Valve lied about sept 30 when there was a suppossed delay & now the delay is real & they needed an excuse or distraction to take our eyes away from the fact that they said no, it's sep 30th. This is all BS!!!!
Anyway, even if it isn't what's the big deal? With steam they could counter anything that happened. I don't see a downside except that I think it's all a fake ass bald faced lie.
