Thanks, Odnetnin

EDIT: "social networking", "applets", "YouKu", "components DSUpdate", and "BHClassic" files have just shown up. for the record, my software tells me "password protected" after each of them.
what are you using?
malwarebytes?

Kapersky Internet Security

EDIT: It didn't recognize any of them as threats, apparently; it just brought them to my attention because they were "password protected" as far as I could tell.

BlacoleRef.AC and FakePAV showed up on a MSE scan. Currently running Malware Bytes, so we'll see if that finds any more

After all the news what happen im so uneasy now to buy last days just for security alone. Are we really safe? And for the record this is what the 2nd incident since last time with user accounts. Is there any comment to put our minds at ease and moving forward about any thing related to steam being closely watched? Not blaming steam its just the outside sources maybe steam uses server side.

Lionsunleashed, you're never safe. Short of living within a carefully controlled cell (and we all hope that doesn't happen) there is always a chance someone or something will cause you trouble. If Valve patches a hole, you can be assured hackers will find another, and thus the cycle progresses. What you can do is be alert, on guard, and when something happens report it. You can take confront that, at the very least, you kept someone else from suffering whatever inflicted you.

Well, it looks like they cleaned it up, or they updated the malware to a newer version which we can't detect. Either way, you should be able to enjoy the e-book without your anti-virus raising alarm.

BTW, this e-book, which was not produced by Valve, is pretty much a glorified article on the production of Portal 2. It's got a lot of stuff that you probably already know, and some parts that are written in a pretty cliche way. Still, not uninteresting and there is also a section on what P2 could have been (and what Valve might yet make some day). Apart from the text, you've got some photos, a few videos (mostly old stuff you've already seen), and a bit of artwork (but not too much). There isn't much extra interactivity compared to what you'd expect if it were done as a regular article on a web site. It's not bad, but don't expect heaps of artwork, Valve's top secrets and mini-games. Just so that you know what you're buying.

And it was switched back to online without any official words about the incident.

What about, they tell what kind of malware it was, so people has something to search for, as it is know people do not know if the site really was infected and with what.

Could spare some people the inconvenience of reformatting their system.
