Wonder how long this has been going on. I got a steam guard pop up the other day, and i was on the same laptop i always use.
Never mind, was looking at the article on my phone, so the picture wasn't too clear, mine was a regular pop up sending a code to my email.
Is the main point of this just to ruin someone's day? I don't see the point of taking over an account... if free games matter -that- much, you'd think people would be quicker to pirate them, not breach someone's account.
Rwilliams, your missing the point. It's about money. Yes you can pirate the game, but most likely there will be no multiplayer function. Another is the steam community marketplace where you can sell a persons collected items from in game. Some games like TF2 and CSGO have some extremely high priced items which go into the 100's of dollars. The money then goes into your Steam Wallet, then you could purchase games with those acquired funds and gift them to another account or sell them at a reduced price to others. These accounts can also be sold to game hackers who just want a cheap account to hack with and not to be worried if their main account gets banned.
I hope there is a solution very soon !!!
