I've got no idea which IP address is claiming to change my password, but i've had two emails in the past two days, exactly. the same.

The "password reset key" is included in the link which the email wants me to go to. Keyloggers ahoy?

Obviously, I removed the link which the email sent me, but I can remove the IP address if that needs to be removed to?

As far as I know, official support email is support@steampowered.com so you better not click any links from that mail, might be a scam

I thought as much.

I don't trust a single email like that which comes through :P Just wanted to inform people that there seems to be a whole lot of these being sent at the moment.

I assumed that my password would be changed to the "key" that the email indicates, and then account stolen.
