South Park Gets Name Change Following Internet Security Problem

By András Neltz on at

The security flaw known as "Heartbleed" could be the worst thing that's ever happened to the internet. Whether or not you're spooked by it, some people are already taking measures. Like...renaming their games on Steam.

For those who already own the game, South Park: The Stick Of Truth is, for the time being, no longer called South Park: The Stick Of Truth in a Steam library. It has instead been renamed "Valve please reset all partner logins because heartbleed".

(It's still called "South Park: The Stick Of Truth" on the store page, however).

Whether this is a mistake or a cry for help, we've asked Ubisoft, and will update if we hear back. Until then, let the game serve as a reminder that, yeah, this might be a good time to change all your passwords. Just in case.
