Steam a quick overview

Steam is gaming software, or if you prefer software for gamers. There are a few problems with it that were noticed.

The first being that password encryption from the very start isn’t exactly apparent. When you can copy and paste out of the password field in the original login window that doesn’t look good. Not only that but you are permitted to copy/paste right out of both fields, password and user name. To me this sounds like a rather large security flaw, wouldn’t you agree?
Then there is the glitch in the program, that happens when you are trying to connect back into online mode from offline mode.Restarting into offline mode works perfectly fine.  An apparent error message popped up asking you to manually restart, to go back online. Interestingly enough this was fixed just recently, bravo Valve.
