With the Steam Mobile Authenticator going into full effect within the next few hours, some troubling signs indicate that the authentication can be fully bypassed by a RAT. Moreover, this has the capability of switching the phone number associated with your account to another.

Well crap, the system became useless before it even gets into full effect. Still, as long as we don't click phishing links and download those suspicious files and stuff, we should be safe, right? right?

First comment on first link shows OP is full of shit. Second link is someone being phished. You can try all you want, but unless you account-lock everything, people are inevitably going to click on a phishing link and get hijacked no matter what system is in place.

 

People are blaming escrow for their own mistakes. No solution Valve puts out is going to be an end-all solution to phishing and hijacking.

Agreed People will always be dumb and then complain they got hacked.
