PSA: Steam Hijacking

By Hans Wuerflein

As a public service announcement (and to kind of make up for missing that one post) I though I should bring something to your attention.

Hijacking Steam accounts.

Some members of GOSU were put out of commission for this weekend’s LAN party due to having their Steam accounts hijacked.

Basically, someone sent them an invite to vote for them in some contest where you had to log in with your Steam ID.  Why they fell for it, I don’t know, but the point is:

DO NOT EVER GIVE OUT YOUR STEAM ID AND/OR PASSWORD TO ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE LOG IN SCREEN!

They’re still trying to get their accounts back.
