J's Chimes: Steam Hijack

My Steam account for gaming was hijacked by some hackers yesterday and could not login to it with my password. There have been some circulation of mails in which prompts you to join a Russian group which makes you login to your account upon joining. Surprisingly, you will be directed to a duplicated or mirrored Steam website to cover their tracks. Lesson learnt? If you do have a Steam account, please check with your friends about it and also accept any invitations unless you've confirm their authenticity. This problem is spreading like wildfire in this recent weeks so gamers please be aware of such scams.
