Steam Guard Scam Warning

Steam users should watch out for this scam. Head on over to Blue's for all the info, links and a screenshot of the scam in action.

Malwarebytes sends along a warning for Steam users they say they will soon publish on the Malwarebytes blog about a way scammers can bypass Steam Guard security in trying to gain unauthorized access to user accounts. This involves falling for a phising scheme along the way, but this is apparently easy to do as the technique uses screens and prompts that mimic the behavior of the actual Valve safeguards being exploited.
