Worst case? Remote code execution with them being able to transverse directories.
That is NOT worst case. The exploits show hackers could execute anything on your PC with this exploit. That source engine exploit will run anything specified in the batch file at startup. So, delete all your files, steal your account credentials, etc. Once you can remotely execute code as you can here, the sky is really the limit.

Just don't click on any random steam url's and you'll be fine.
No, that won't do it because if the Steam url's are scripted, you don't have to click on a thing. And, if your browser doesn't prompt on the URL's as Safari doesn't at all and others won't if set that way, you won't even know if your browser executed these URL's.
