Steam servers suffer DDoS attack

Steam's servers have been hit with intermittent outages throughout Thursday evening, leaving users unable to access Valve's storefront. A pair of Twitter users called chF and Larceny have claimed responsibility for the outages, hitting Steam with repeated DDoS attacks.

Valve has not responded to the attacks through either its Facebook or Twitter feeds.

The attacks coincide with the final day of Steam's Winter Sale. Shacknews has contacted Valve for further information on the attacks and whether the downtime will affect the end of the sale.
