Report: Steam Hit By Steam Profile Page Exploit
Steam is the biggest marketplace for PC gamers and according to a report, there is a Steam Profile page exploit that can steal your login information.
According to a Reddit post, currently there is a risk for Steam users “when viewing or simply opening PROFILE pages of other steam users as well as your OWN activity feed”. The report suggests to avoid viewing suspicious Steam profile pages due to the Steam Profile page exploit and has also detailed a couple of steps to protect your account.
Those who are possibly affected by this Steam Profile page exploit should change the password for their account, enable the mobile authenticator through Steam mobile app, de-authorize Steam Guard on all other profiles from settings, and restart your router or change the IP.
One Redditor, DirtDiglett, claims that this exploit is real and users should “triple-check URL” before entering their log-in information.
Valve is yet to confirm the existence of this exploit but it is better to be safe than sorry, and there is no harm in being careful.
