Steam Accounts Being Stolen Through Elaborate Free Game Scam
A new scam has cropped up on Steam that some of you might already be aware of. But for those who aren't, be darn careful of messages you get from other people - even if you think it's being sent by one of your friends.
From Bleeping Computer:
"An elaborate scam is underway that pretends to be a free game giveaway site, but instead hacks a user's Steam account, takes control over it, and then incorporates the new victim into their attack by targeting other players.
The scam works by attackers hacking into Steam accounts and sending messages to the victim's friends that they can get a free Steam game by going to a site and entering a promo code."
