Exceptional news item, not touhou related but felt it deserves the front news.

Joining IRC through my work office I got informed by our Akyu Garage players that there is a Steam Virus going around, infecting people. It seems the infected person sends his friends a message which might be a one line text " WTF Dude " or " Check this out " followed by a link.

Do. Not. Click. The. Link.

A RL friend of mine confirmed his infected steam through whatsapp. So this seems to be serious business. If you think you're infected, do not attempt to login anywhere on any website (not just steam) and take immediate action to clean your computer.
