What is the matter?
Scammers are hacking Steam accounts via free game giveaway site that claims to offer free Steam game by entering a promo code on the site.
How does this scam work?
Once users enter promo codes into the fake free game giveaway site, scammers hack their Steam accounts, take control over the accounts, and then target victims’ friends by sending the URL of the scam site via messages.
This leads to a repeated cycle of promotion for the scam site through hacked accounts.
What should you do?
BleepingComputer tested this scam site with a Steam account. Upon entering the account login credentials, the scam site logged in to the account and changed the account’s associated email address.
