Phishers Bypass Steam Guard Protection
I was digging through some recent Steam related phish pages, and came across something I havenít seen before: a new way to steal Steam accounts while bypassing an additional security measure.
Typically a Steam phish page asks for username and password, like all phish attacks Ė often these can be foiled by enabling Steam Guard on your account.
What is Steam Guard?
When logging in on a PC you havenít used before, Steam Guard will pop a window asking for a verification code which will have been sent to your email address. Without the code, you canít log in. Scammers have come up with a somewhat novel way to try and get around this security measure.
