Sharing a quick warning for steam users

Hi all
Thought i would share this with u all, just incase. Please all steam users scan your PC. This is what virus i found last night, strange thing is i havent downloaded anything recently which makes me think it may be one of them time virus things.
I tried to delete the following virus
SDbot.gen!f

I used MSE and it said it couldnt delete it however it did quarantine. 20 minutes later my steam got hacked. Ive had to buy all games again ( long story which steam basically said tough)
So if you do scan and find it, please please change your pass quick.

Well thing is that i only installed MSE yesterday lol. So im wondering how long it was on there for. Ive run a full scan both with AVG and MSE and only MSE detected it.
I may be paranoid, but i find it funny how when i try to remove it ( unsuccessfully) my steam hacks within minutes. I dont know enough about how viruses work to say wether me trying to remove it actaully activated it. Im concerned that AVG didnt detect it and still didnt after MSE had

Sorry for your issue, I suggest you uninstall whatever AV you currently have, and install Avast and have it do a boot scan. You can remove avast afterwards if you want, and put MSE back on. I had issues where no other AV found what had infected my pc, and using Avast to do a boot scan fixed it right on up. I think it is worth a shot.

What specific virus did MSE find? sometimes mse gives false positives.

This one mate: SDbot.gen!f

I seem to have gotten rid of it, not before my steam got hijacked. But imho steam customer support has been 'flakey' at best. Told it can take upto 5 days for them to return my account to me. Then in the next breath im told that if said hacker does anything to my account which results in me getting a Vac ban then essentially tough.
Nice

possibly "NAME: Randex
ALIAS: SdBot, Backdoor.SdBot.gen, Randex.C, Slanper.A
VARIANT: Randex.C


Randex is an IRC controlled worm, based on the well known SdBot IRC backdoor. This worm infects Windows computers on local networks that use weak passwords."

the weakness has been using IRC, check this site for details

This shows that MSE works better than AVG.
