    Description: This guy added me and wanted me to check out his inventory to see if I want any of his hats. I was in-game and me idiot clicked on that link (in the steam browser though). It leads to a blank page. When I checked out the name of the link and his profile i realized that it was a phishing/virus/script link. I remember people getting hacked after clicking a link that was tf2items with a typo and people losing their hats because they opened a link in their steam browser. My hats are still there and I changed my steam+email password. What should I do next? I am quite worried.

    Don't visit that link unless you know what you are doing and how to secure yourself.

    Never tell your password to anyone.

    18:43 - [TPX] Chris: I was browsing some inventory browser, you've got nice unusuals. :D I was wondering if you'd sell them for a good price?
    18:43 - Dezu: yeah but not for money
    18:44 - [TPX] Chris: I've got some items I wanna sell anyway
    18:45 - [TPX] Chris: You're interested in other unusuals?
    18:45 - Dezu: what can you offer?
    18:45 - [TPX] Chris: Peek a look at what I can offer you @ tfinventory

    18:48 - [TPX] Chris: anything catches your eye?
    18:49 - Dezu: >tf2inventory
    18:49 - Dezu: nice try
    18:49 - [TPX] Chris: nice try at what?
    18:54 - Dezu: what is that link?
    18:54 - Dezu: phishing? a virus?
    18:54 - [TPX] Chris: some inventory browser
    18:54 - Dezu: a script?
    18:54 - [TPX] Chris: pick your guess
    18:54 - Dezu: phishing?
    18:55 - [TPX] Chris: nah.
    18:55 - Dezu: virus?
    18:55 - [TPX] Chris: I don't know if you could qualify that as this.
    18:56 - Dezu: what exactly does it do?
    18:56 - [TPX] Chris: Sorry, can't tell you 'bout that.
    18:56 - [TPX] Chris: But I like your style!

    A friend of mine just checked out the link. It's a script that opens a trade window and initiates a trade to steal your hats. BE CAREFUL!

    I clicked it. Closed it straight away, restarted Steam, changed my password and deleted the guy. No trades opened up or anything and my stuff is still in my inv... If I'm not safe what can I do? Sorry if this is the wrong place for this discussion
