A Steam phishing scam is attempting to lure players into tournament play

There''s a new browser-in-the-browser phishing scam technique that''s angling players with the promise of tournament playing.

A new report on the topic has been published by the Group of Directors, illustrating how a new campaign is targeting professional gamers (spotted by PCGamer).

The campaign imitates Steam''s browser pages, which contain fake direct messages, inviting players to participate in tournaments.

Watch the Eurogamer newscast on YouTube, and Ubisoft is betting big on Assassin''s Creed.

They''re then urged to enter Steam with their 2FA code, giving hackers access to their accounts, virtual goods, and credit card information, as well as a friend list to meet their wishes.

The same tab allows users to be convinced that the browser is valid and that it may be moved around and minimized as a webpage.

A link in the address bar is similar to that of the legitimate website, making these fraudulent windows difficult to recognize.

This new campaign appears to be targeting professional gamers in the hope they will have more expensive virtual goods.

Don''t click on links you don''t trust or steal personal information, whether you are a pro or not!
