Like I said, this isn't the typical Steam hijacking. They pretend like they're your friend, and link you to a site that "they're working on". It's not a knockoff Steam site.
So the said person isn't a bot? Seems like they're putting a lot of effort into it...

Is the website basically authorising a remote access login or something?

A good reason to disable all remote desktop services in msconfig.

thansk for heads up an is there anything i can do to avoid this happening to me, dont have internets atm so its all good but next week ill be in trouble XD

Well, Thanks again for the heads up, these guys just try harder and harder to trick us! I personally don't click links from anyones steam chat, unless i'm literally voice chatting or i know the link is legit (Come on, you can tell in context, your best friend isn't going to try and scam you for youtube.com after talking for like 30 minutes)

Also, the BEST TIP

MAKE SURE YOU VERIFY YOUR ACCOUNT

It's a Java fly by. It prompts you to update your java client. And then the page just sits there and does nothing. Since you are troubleshooting your "friend's" website for them, you report back and tell him that the page doesn't work. He says thanks.

The Javascript that you've just turned on though, was a fake Java, made to look just like the real one (SEVERAL OCN members were hit by this in December, myself being the first). Once you've downloaded it, you're infected. And he'll have a hidden file on your system, that will allow him to remote desktop in.

And yes, they put a LOT of effort into it. I actually sat down and chatted with my little haxor buddy after I got my account back. I followed through with my promises. He gave my friend's accounts back, so I didn't turn his butt in. I did put up an awareness thread last time this happened though.

Won't help. My services were all locked down to the essentials that I need. And he still got through.

Install MBAM, pay for the full version even (great software). That stopped the attack before it even happened on a few of my friend's systems. Otherwise, just make 110% sure that its a valid link before you click it. Obviosly, youtube.com is safe. overclock.net is safe. wlbsteamgaming.tk, that's not safe. That's close to the one he used to get the guys on my buddy list (WLB being my clan name).

pio, were you running a firewall? There must be other stuff you can do to better protect yourself if your computer gets attacked. For example - you said that this guy managed to grab all the passwords stored on your system. He could even get your steam password from your PC. Is there any way to better protect passwords stored in your computer?

I guess you could just not store passwords at all...

it's accually impossible to lose your account, so don't worry. If it's hacked and they hack on a VAC game, then yea you'll be VAC banned on those games, but your other games are still fine.

Take a photo of your CDKEY if you have a disk game on steam, and your cooool
I've never used a credit card (or debit card) to pay for a game. I use paypal every time, i've also never registered a non-steam game on steam.

Where does this leave me?

My steam password is longer than my online banking password. But if im machine's compromised then that's irrelevant.

yeah it's more advanced.

i got a message from the fake pioneerisloud and when i responded it was pretty obvious the person i was speaking to didn't know what pioneerisloud would have known.

just be careful
