While the researchers’ predictions for what’s to come include “several interesting ideas,” they “do not want to give the creators of Steam Stealers a roadmap for their activities.” They added, “We have already seen ransomware attacking videogame players with creations such as ‘TeslaCrypt’, and we fear that combining different malware families could become a potential nightmare and up the ante in this never-ending game.”
It’s a big business. So many roubles have been laundered too.
It is odd world we live in that my Steam and Google accounts use two factor authentication, while my online bank restricts the length of a password to 8 characters. lol
Also, PSA - use the Steam Guard app or at the very least attach to an email validation that uses Google Authenticator or something. Madness not to.
