That's two completely different things than what you've said in the last 4 posts.
No, it isn't. You simply don't understand what you read.

A page running something is not the URL itself being a script.
No kidding, nor did I say it was. With redirection the browser will automatically execute/go to Steam URL, which will automatically run Steam, which will automatically run/handle the URL to execute the attack. PC owned shortly thereafter. Learn to read.

And yes you're fearmongering, when there is a solution right there.
I am not fear mongering when this is a very real fear of exploit since the exploit works and it is public. Second, that solution is one which I already mentioned below, but it isn't permanent unless Valve removes the functionality from Steam because Steam automatically restores itself when it is run if a part is deleted, etc.
