Hi, today, i got the first time someone trade to "hack" me.
He was sooooooooooooooooo bad, i never trust him, i just take some funny times with him.
But i already got hacked, a bat take control of my account to send links to my friends.
If he gets access to my account, it's because i trust a friend... 😅
Do u have already in contact with some hackers or been hacked ?

Have you already get hack ?
Only once. It was so easy to spot. But then again, I was already burned hearing about those attemps
You know, contact steam support on discord ahah
I've had hijack attempts back when I was actively trading, but never lost my account to others.
Can I ask how he hacked you? Add you through steam?
its always best to not even add them, just straight up block them if their account looks sus.
I guess... as always - he gived himself his username+password on fake login site.
It's was a close trader friend and was just for vote on a website, big mistake.
Not really, in fact some sites ask you to accepts some conditions, it's was an official steam connection (i connected on the official).
And the only thing the bot do is to asks some questions to my contacts and send them a link like me :/
So this is exactly what I've told.
The official Steam connection site will never ask for your password if you're already logged in Steam store page.
people try to hack my account/give me fake keys atleast 4 times a day noones done it yet
Hacking is using exploits to gain access to something you do not normally have access to.
Phishing is masquerading as a trustworthy source in an attempt to bait a user to surrender sensitive information such as a username, password, credit card number, etc.
I know, but it's like "Oh my facebook got hacked", no karen you just left your facebook session open on public place 😅
Remember: When some idiot tries to get you to click a link, do yourself a favor, open a Google tab, copy the site link and paste in into the Google search bar (not your address bar. duh). The rest should be pretty obvious: if the site doesn't come to the top or exist at all... well there you go, not worth clicking.
I deal with these sub-humans on a near daily basis. It's usually worth screenshotting your convo and the bunk search results on the link, posting them to an imgur bin and filing a report on their account. Banned many a few morons in my day.

I was just thinking that. Nobody has every tried to hack me. Maybe I'm not worth the effort or maybe I just add people I know and they won't lose their account to obvious Steam fake scams?
Could be both.
I had an account stolen once. I think it was around 2008 when I mistakingly entered my details on one of those steammcommunity phishing sites (it has been quite a while so my memory of the event might be a bit hazy). I have sent a scan of my box copy of Counter Strike Anthology to the support and had my account somewhat promptly recovered. Haven't fallen for any tricks since then though.
I question myself if it give good Imposters ||besides in Among Us||
