This is the message I have gotten from an SG member, whose account has been hacked too. I am showing this message just to warn everybody that if you receive that message, DON'T PRESS THE LINK

It's very annoying, I'm getting this message multiple times from multiple steam friends :/
I clicked on the link and im alive ;o
same here.....click on link is not bad, but it is first step
just dont try to login there and you will be safe
Exactly, I think you can click the link, but DON'T login with Steam account. If not, you are safe, because I press the link, didn't login, and nothing happened
Just don't try to login through the fake Steam login popup.
Damn thanks for the info
So I'm curious, how are accounts being hacked? So far I have gotten similar messages from at least 9 different users (I unfriended anyone who sent me spam, some are even reputable users here on SG)...
Is this some kind of sophisticated attack or just a standard phishing attack (directs you to a page that looks like the steam login page to collect your username/password)?
If so, I can't believe people are still falling for this nowadays!
Also why aren't they using two-factor authentication (the steam mobile guard thing)?
oh I see, a good-old phishing scam.
I guess no matter how advanced our apps and tools get, you can always take advantage of the "human factor" :)

Just got one message myself, but site name is now rolldatgamexx
Sponsor "Humble bundle" hahahaha.
Humble bundle Knows use their name to stole Steam's account.
I got a link from a "friend"
I logged in
but I checked it was fake
than I changed my passwort fast enought (I think and hope)
and than I lookt after my "Fiendsacc"
and I saw he was banned
I'm impressed how the oldest trick on the internet still works flawlessly.
I remember myself playing Age of Empires I when this type of fraud was a thing...
