    Warning! Steam virus!

    There is currently a virus circulating around steam. Private messages are being sent, supposedly from your friends, with the message "WTF Dude!" and a link to an image file. IT WAS NOT SENT BY YOUR FRIENDS!!! It is a VIRUS! Do not open it!

    You're gonna have to provide more proof before I'll believe something like this, until you do, this is nothing more, nothing less than you blowing smoke and a hoax.

    It's not a hoax. Go hit up the Steam forums, you will see people taking about it. I have got the message from 2 people on my friends list. Just ignore it.

    It's been reported to Valve.

    It will say it's linking to an image file, you click it, there is no image. From what I have seen it's an .scr file. Don't download it, it's malware.

    I put the info out there as a public service. What you do with it is up to you...

    That's an odd response :/

    Anyways, yes it's there, I just exited my steam for a few and closed the messages. Lamo Kanye's. It was repetitive and annoying
