This fucking thing hit my laptop. I'd suggest everyone disable steam and thoroughly check your systems.

What douchebags at Valve, not thanking the dude but then claiming to address it. Probably it’s a bugger to fix and they didn’t want to spend the time on it.

Not sure Wonder, I walked in on my pc being remotely controlled (promptly pulled the network cord and did a thorough cleaning) a few days ago. Malwarebytes found a ton of shit in the steam and chrome directories. Figured I'd give you gents the heads up to watch for it.

This gave me an idea.

How much would a programmer in India charge per hour? I could outsource all my contract work, not work at all, and still get paid.
