Default Phishy Steam Guard Warning

A few months ago, we looked at how phishers had come up with a way to get around Steam Guard protection on Steam gaming accounts: asking users to dig out the relevant Steam Guard SSFN file from their folders, then have them upload it manually to a fake login page.

Armed with this file and the username / password, these bad guys could bypass the protection and immediately make use of the plundered account. Now it seems phishers have tried to automate the process a bit and just in time for the Summer Steam sale too.
