A Discord user who goes by the username Leakerwanderer has put out tens of thousands of new assets cut open for the fans. Valve has been a continuous target for leakers and hackers. We have seen large sums of data getting leaked from the game developer. However, this recent leak has overshadowed everything in the past.
- Valve faces a massive leak from its repository.
- A Discord user “Leakerwanderer” has leaked a huge amount of assets from the Valve repository.
- The files contain assets from major games like Half-Life 2, Portal, Team Fortress 2, and Counter-Strike.
- The leaker claims to have had the files since 2016.
You, as a fan, might not help but yearn to check out this massive leak. The leak has come out in a Discord server which seems to be formed for such activities by its name, “Valve Cut Content.” Recent overflooding on the server left it locked for some hours. However, you can now check out the server.
They were first noticed by a Twitter user sylvia_braixen, who shared screenshots of the leak. The documents contain assets from Team Fortress, Counter-Strike, and Portal. The user calls it “Valve’s biggest leak,” and with no doubt, it should go by that label judging from the amount of data that has been revealed to the public.
According to the same user Valve repository could only be accessed with a source engine dev license. A bit of the repository got leaked back in 2016, and now almost the entire is out.
However, coming back to the leak, the Team Fortress 2 document reportedly is a 61GB file and contains a large sum of unreleased Team Fortress 2 unreleased maps, models, and more.
The leak contains some intriguing files like old weapon models of the older bone saw, and a blue sawed-off shotgun are featured. An unknown model concerning a three-legged robot was also already discovered in the surfaced files.
For some fans, this leak has marked an end to an era for Team Fortress 2 since the leaked files contain almost everything that could ever surface online regarding the game.
The user Leakerwanderer also shared a message on the Discord server as a little background story to the leak. The leaker says:
I have held onto these since 2016. Most of the filedates are from when I moved them after my computer blew up in 2019 … I also did my toying around with it for a few years, did not upload because I was threatened everytime.”
Guessing from everything aforementioned, Valve might be under a targeted data breach recently. Recently prototype-level map of Left 4 Dead also leaked online in a playable state.
However, this also is not the first time that Valve has come face to face with gore security issues. On December 25, 2015, certain technical problems on Steam resulted in the shutdown of the entire service.
At the time, it wasn’t clear how widespread the problem was, but social media was awash with claims from Steam users that they had seen or accessed the private data of other users. The service was quickly brought back online, although Steam said nothing more than notifying that the problem had been fixed.
A DoS attack on Steam involving a third party was the headliner. Any such occasions might point to the involvement of inside parties in the breaching of data, and that too is as big as the recent leak.
In any case, we at our website will keep our commitment to reporting any latest leaks. Stay tuned.
