WTF Malware Spreads Via Steam Chat

Steam WTF Malware Spreads

Security analyst Graham Cluley have identified a malware being distributed through steam chats. If you have seen a message similar to this(below) from your friend, their computer is infected by the malware and is spamming you and everyone else on their contacts list with the “WTF?????” message.

If you have received the above message, don't click on the link, simply avoid the message. 

Graham Cluley said, "If you make the mistake of clicking on the link, and opening the downloaded file, your Windows computer could also become infected and your Steam credentials potentially stolen."

The link appears to be a JPEG image file is actually a .SCR Windows executable file, containing malicious code.
