Yesterday (Sunday 10th October) I was hacked and almost lost my steam account. Here is the story.
I was looking at the community and found a link for "free games" I thought (extremely stupidly) ill check it out see what it really means. Later on when I was filming for the ascendant part 2 I got a notification saying my account was being accessed by another computer. I managed to change the password and verify it was me so I did and got the account back almost instantly.
However while my account was down the hacker sent the same web address I had followed earlier to friends and steam groups that I was a part of.
If you have received a web link form me do not go on it and delete it. I must also apologise to all of those that the hacker had sent the web link to. It was very foolish and is fully aware of all sings of a fake web page. There will be others who have done the same and I must say that they were hacked and were not the source of the problem. They were less fortunate and could not get back into their account
