• Entire AMD Dirt 3 Key List Leaked (3 Million Keys)
    1,835 replies, posted
[quote] An cardinal oversight on a third party fulfillment agency website hosting activation keys for Codemasters’ DiRT 3 game has resulted in the leak of some 3 million keys that allow the game to be played for free on the Steam game platform. It was first thought that the keys were hosted on the AMD site and servers, since the activation keys in question were associated with free Dirt 3 vouchers that are shipped with a number of AMD products such as graphic cards. But, as it turns out, the compromised site - located on AMD4u.com - has nothing to do with AMD's website or servers. If comments on Steam's forums can be used as an indication of how the leak was made possible, it all happened because the site did not contain the .htaccess file - a configuration file that makes it possible to restrict access to the specific directories on a server. According to Eurogamer, AMD has confirmed the leak and has promised that it would continue to honor all valid game vouchers with a slight delay. On the other hand, as leaks go, this one is pretty harmless for users, as no personal information was compromised. AMD and its third party fulfillment agency website have learned a good lesson rather cheaply, as the compromised keys can be easily blocked through Steam. [/quote] [url]http://www.net-security.org/secworld.php?id=11580[/url] It seems AMD4U is working with steam to remove the accounts that are not using legit keys. Almost every key reports used so they most likely blacklisted them. This is a key list. [url]http://www.touhouradio.com/dirt_3_keys.txt[/url] So if you find a working key (unlikely) then follow this FAQ: [quote] [b]Will I Get Banned For Using A Key?:[/b] No you won't, steam support itself reassured everyone that nobody will get banned for this. [b]How Did The Keys Get "Leaked"?:[/b] By adding /keys/ to the end of the amd4u URL. They forgot .htaccess those dumbfucks. [b]Has Anyone Else Got Banned?:[/b] Nope [/quote] Keys work like this: [code] (1892292,'1447-9SDR-6239-87EJ','DERPD-5HACW-A8L8L') - Random Code from list (Key Number, 'ATI Card Number','License Key') [/code] Use License Key to activate it on steam. Disregard the first few pages... If you want real facts start on pages 35 or 40.
But... I want it
Steam will just block the keys. And people probably still need to crack the game due the lack of a dvd, it's like they got a free key from a keygen.
C- Can I have one...?
-snip- penis is tasty
Make a new steam account ... profit?

They were keys that AMD was giving out as a promotion so they are perfectly legitimate keys other than the fact that they were stolen from the website.
Welp, a friend sent me one earlier and I redeemed it. Apparantly Valve are just removing the keys in waves as they're applied and then blacklisting them.
[QUOTE=Teddi Orange;32138617]Welp, a friend sent me one earlier and I redeemed it. Apparantly Valve are just removing the keys in waves as they're applied and then blacklisting them.[/QUOTE] Mine still shows up on my games list.
Also @OP why would steam bother cleaning up their mistake. Its their game, not valves. If they want to give away keys then good for them, steam would have no right to intervene.
[QUOTE=Squarebob;32138659]Mine still shows up on my games list.[/QUOTE] As does mine. However like I said, apparantly v:v:v
I wonder what's gonna happen to those who redeemed the keys legitimately.
Good, AMD pissed me off not letting me have it Apparently I wasn't eligible because I'm using a laptop ATI card
So what if you didn't steal the key and you redeemed a legit one?
[QUOTE=zzaacckk;32138663]Also @OP why would steam bother cleaning up their mistake. Its their game, not valves. If they want to give away keys then good for them, steam would have no right to intervene.[/QUOTE] Maybe because Steam also loses money over this?
[QUOTE=Sharker;32138714]So what if you didn't steal the key and you redeemed a legit one?[/QUOTE] umm why take the time to punish the bad guys when you can punish everybody instead
[QUOTE=Sharker;32138714]So what if you didn't steal the key and you redeemed a legit one?[/QUOTE] That's true. I mean if you actually got the promo code from an AMD product. I'm not sure what would happen then.
I wanna post the link, but I will hate myself afterwards for doing it.
[QUOTE=Titz;32138771]I wanna post the link, but I will hate myself afterwards for doing it.[/QUOTE] If anyone took 5 seconds of investigation they would find out the link. Especially considering that the [removed] of the post that you linked gives a direct reference where to find it.
Steam TOS: [QUOTE]Steam is allowed to disable your account if : Piracy or Hacking This includes using an unauthorized ("hacked") Steam client to access Steam, attempting to register fake CD Keys [B]or attempting to register a CD Key which has been published on the internet.[/B][/QUOTE]
Given one from the same person as last time who gave me Dirt 2 and this time it turns out he just grabbed a stolen key. Thats always wonderful.
[QUOTE=zzaacckk;32138841]If anyone took 5 seconds of investigation they would find out the link. Especially considering that the [removed] of the post that you linked gives a direct reference where to find it.[/QUOTE] Eh, good point.
I got Dirt 3 with my card, they better not mess up and get rid of it while fixing the problem.
[QUOTE=silentjubjub;32138756]That's true. I mean if you actually got the promo code from an AMD product. I'm not sure what would happen then.[/QUOTE] I got mine from an online contest thing that AMD was having a month or two ago. Hopefully it just affects keys registered since the leak.
-nope-
Steam wont ban people that activate a key. For all they know you got an IM from a friend saying 'free key' and I was messaged by like 3 people giving me keys for it, thus showing the mass amount of spreading.
[QUOTE=Electrocuter;32138727]Maybe because Steam also loses money over this?[/QUOTE] Valve aren't going to lose money over this. Its 3 million keys that the publisher / developer (so Codemasters) have given (or sold) to AMD for a promotion, it has nothing to do with Valve or Steam other than that it is being distributed over it.
[QUOTE=Electrocuter;32138727]Maybe because Steam also loses money over this?[/QUOTE] AMD likely already bought all the keys. They'll be the ones losing money. Beaten by less than a minute
This is insane, 3 million?
Holy fuck I activated one. What do I do now? :(
