Be aware of malicious links

Post by RickieAOM »

I have been approached by multiple friends on my Steam list. So far they have been RIP members messaging me with a link and the request to help out their CSGO team. DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK. Steam accounts have been hacked and it is spreading the link.

I clicked on it knowing there are cs:go players in the clan (oops). I found info on what to do if you click the link:

Scan for Malware/virus (fortunately I found none but do it anyway, full scan)

Deauthorize all devices https://store.steampowered.com/twofactor/manage

Change your Account password on a secure device.

Generate new back up codes.

Revoke the API key https://steamcommunity.com/dev/apikey (there shouldn't be any at all)

I would also recommend getting Steamguard on your phone for more security if you haven't already.

Hope this helps :handgestures-salute:

One tip. Use a password manager like lastpass and the autofill function. Autofill will detect phising sites and not fill out your password thus avoiding problems like this. It’s free too.

I have also unblocked 19 contacts, some of them are still not showing in friends list (ie Trixy RNGunner) so i assume as they may have been compromised too i would still be blocked on their accounts?

Not sure if you're blocked, but you've been removed from my list. :(
