Default The Story Behind the Half-Life 2 Source Code Leak

About a year prior to Half-Life 2's official release, someone had hacked into Valve's servers and stole the source code for the game, and within no time, it was made available online for anyone to download, look through, and play. I remember being one of those to download the code at the time, because it was seriously exciting. After all, fans of the series had been waiting for what seemed like forever to play the game, so who could resist a download?
