If you haven't been able to access your profile, or get onto steam, or get onto the store, the steam servers are currently DOWN, as Valve has shut them off due to a security breach

Your accounts are safe for the most part, but you'll nonetheless wish to keep an eye on your bank accounts, it may be wise if you have credit card info stored on your steam account to let your credit card company know to block any purchases from steam until the issue is resolved

The easy solution to this being don't be the idiot that saves your payment information nakedly. Unless it's a third party security service (Ex: Paypal) don't save your payment information on services like Steam. Don't let Steam cache your cash, kay?

You're really safe, the problem has been fixed and even when it was a problem, the vulnerability only lasted for a short while before Valve locked down the servers
