Security vulnerabilities have been revealed, and unscrupulous individuals can exploit this to access your computer via remote code execution.

For your safety, do not play any Valve multiplayer games for the interim: This includes TF2, CS:GO, and Left 4 Dead. Spread the word, and be safe.
Be wily. Be unpredictable. Keep them guessing. But, be fair.

Do I need to do anything about my Steam account in the meantime? If I have a play history of any of those games, is there an issue?

The best thing to do is to not play any Source game for the time being.

No. Simply refrain from playing any source-based game under absolutely any circumstance for the time being. If you're especially worried, enable 2FA.

I'll be keeping my ears to the ground for further news, and I'll be sure to report back if new information emerges.

Seems way overblown, presumably due to fake RCE exploits. (nice meme cathook)

In a statement to IGN Valve said, “We have reviewed the leaked code and believe it to be a reposting of a limited CS: GO engine code depot released to partners in late 2017, and originally leaked in 2018.”
Valved added, “From this review, we have not found any reason for players to be alarmed or avoid the current builds (as always, playing on the official servers is recommended for greatest security). We will continue to investigate the situation and will update news outlets and players if we find anything to prove otherwise.

No wonder they don't want to work on this game anymore.
