Question Trojan in steam update?

I just turned on my computer, started steam, and then it started updating..

But then my Anti-Virus warned me I had a trojan horse in:
C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\VSTDLIB.dll
and
C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\AppOverlay.dll
after steam was done updating.

It got successfully disinfected, but does this mean a hacker got in the steam network?

Same alert, Kaspersky 2013. Steam is off until either Kaspersky or Steam has some sort of explanation.

There's a thread on the Kaspersky forums here. I suggest checking both there and here for updates.

Yep, just got it too.


Steam isn't infected, I know that for sure.

So pretty much this is just a false-positive for Kaspersky?
