    I was idling this morning when Steam sens me a message : someone logged in onto my account from another computer ?
    Huh ? What ? How ? :eek:hmy:
    So I reconnect, a few seconds later, same message, again.
    This lasts for a couple of minutes, until I finally manage to change my password.

    No more problems then.

    Which leaves me time to ponder... I never gave my password to anyone, no one even tried to ask me and I wouldn't fall for that. What if I had accidentally logged on a well-done scam site passing off as Steam community ? Will I be VAC banned ...?

    Well... turns out last time I went to my parents' I forgot to uncheck the box that doesn't automatically log me in, and my little brother has been enjoying TF2 for a couple of weeks now. I guess it explains why I have 24 hours of TF2 for the past couple of weeks when I pretty much didn't have time to play at all...:p

    I think I'll keep my new PW to myself, though :closedeyes:
