PSA: Steam Vulnerability

Saw this on Ars Technica today: Steam vulnerability can lead to remote insertion of malicious code

"For instance, a Steam URL can be coded to call a "reinstall" command, which loads a splash image file hosted on an arbitrary Windows Shared Drive controlled by the attacker. By exploiting an integer overflow vulnerability in the way Steam handles that splash image, the attacker can load malicious code into remote memory."

Just a heads up.
