Nice of valve/Gabe to admit stuff so un-masked.
Except for the part where they don't know if they can decrypt the credit card info... I think it's pretty assumable that if they took that content, they have by now locked it away in several locations until they figure out how to crack it.

I think if they got the info they would be charging people's cards already.

Not that I'm an expert or anything, but in my mind it seels like;
A smart person would use the info to carefully watch and pick out which would be the best cards to charge, then do so in small amounts.
Rather then blasting away with the money and flashing flags.
