48. It's good advice but not foolproof. Oct 17, 2012, 21:22 hb3d

I would hope that anyone here receiving a message about a website wanting to launch Steam would click No, especially if that wasn't their intent when clicking the link.
Well Chrome has a "remember my choice" box on that launch dialog box, so if you ever press "yes" and click the box, you won't be prompted again for Steam URL's. Other browsers probably do too. So if you go to the Steam website, install a game or demo using the Steam URL link when prompted, and click the box, you could be exploited later without knowing it because there would be no prompt. That is why relying on a prompt is not a real fix for this type of problem. It's good advice, but not foolproof.
