According to Forbes

Can the CSGO Source Code leak affect my PC?
While there is a pretty low chance that it will affect your PC. However, it can affect your steam account and in-game account. There is no report on any malicious activity after this leak. Since this leak gave access to pretty much everything on CSGO. They can change your account credentials, steal your inventory, or ban you. There are also rumors that they can perform remote code execution, a method to make someone else’s system to execute codes remotely.
Valve has yet to comment on all this. We hope that they figure it all out soon. It is a big loss for Valve.
