Steam Guard Scam Warning

Malwarebytes sends along a warning for Steam users they say they will soon publish on the Malwarebytes blog about a way scammers can bypass Steam Guard security in trying to gain unauthorized access to user accounts. This involves falling for a phising scheme along the way, but this is apparently easy to do as the technique uses screens and prompts that mimic the behavior of the actual Valve safeguards being exploited. This scheme has been around for a while now, as a month-old Reddit thread discusses what's going on, how to avoid being scammed, and shows this in action in this screenshot.
