#1 Post PSA: Virus being spread over Steam - beware.
Hi All,

We're getting reports of a virus being spread across Steam. The link looks like an innocent link to a picture (http://xyz/picture123.jpg) but it actually takes you to a page that downloads a virus onto your PC.

Just a heads up to be super careful what you click on, confirm with the person sending you the link what it is before clicking and avoid clicking links sent to you out of the blue. Remember, even links to things you wouldn't expect to do harm - images and such can still be exploited to infect your computer.

Seen it before, had 1 of the guys (Mumu the Devil) sent one to me, promising some CS:GO skins I never cared about, link being written in some kind of BS address, never clicked on it though, blocked the bastard straight away.

Such things can be easily recognized though. If you are sent a link to something you never care about while the guy tries to be as persuasive as possible, and the link leading to an adress you've never heard before, that's the virus bastard. However, sometimes these links can be manipulated.

Also, the JPG link doesn't work for me, would like to use an example of what we are dealing with now to avoid it.

He was just giving an example of how the link can look like, it's not meant to lead you anywhere
