    Default Steam Account Hijackings

    Guys/girls be careful there seems to be a wave of account hijackings occurring just before the Festive season.

    Had again 3 friends that account got hijacked.

    What they do is they take a friends hijacked account and give you a link to free steam games but its not its a link to get your details.

    The link to the real free games for steam.

    Sure it might be that sometimes places gives away freegames but rather google it than to click on a link.

    I got sent a link once. Some random person to steamingfreegames, or something along those lines.

    At the moment I've got a few unknowns in my invites pending list.

    Its kind of a general rule of the internet: Always be wary, people are phishing for your account details for everything. Triple check the URL of the site you are visiting when typing in login details.

    I agree with this. I also had my account stolen like this once (very stupid, but I blame the fact that I was gekuier ). Luckily I got it back, but I always ignore these links.

    Surprisingly enough, I'd say the majority of people that inhabit the interwebz are un-evolved pond scum, so trust noone.
