Probably idiotic beta testers. It really isn't that important how they are leaked, just that they are.

No it wasnt from beta testers. The first leak for doom was from ATI because id was sharing info with the companys that made graphic cards. ATI leaked this information about the doom 3 engine and aa and such I dont even remember how many years ago this was. This is why nVidia was given "the edge" over ATI for doom. The next leak for doom was at an E3 were id said f*** it the game will be done when its done. Im not too sure about the leaks from hl other then when the hackers stole the scoure code.

I thought that the HL2 leak was an internal thing, like someone working there leaked it out. But I may be mistaken.

No your not mistaken alot of the leaks were from internal problems. This was a different problem the hackers were the ones that took the soucre code.

Most leaks come from the company that produces the copys of the CD's. All it takes is one guy just to grab one copy of the disk and slip it into his pocket and he has a copy of the game before the game is released.
