No, I only played dota 2 from the past month did no other steam related activities.
However I clicked some links shared under pc deals thread regarding some deals yesterday night (around 10) and when i reached home I was unable to login. When i checked my mail i had message at 10 pm yesterday that my email has been changed. Also I have steam security on, so when some one tries to login from new PC it sends a verification code, I didnt receive that too. The e-mail was changed bypassing it. BTW my e-mail is not hacked (though i changed the pwd anyway). Dont understand how they got through.
Also recently I used using Dotabuff, which asks for steam login credentials to login. However I have been using it since 2012 (though not regulary)

You said you clicked some links shared under PC deals thread. Is that on this forum? Can you be specific what links you clicked?
If any of the links leads to some suspicious sites, it needs to be removed right away.

Hi, I did some more research, the links i clicked were after the account was hacked, after almost and hour. So they are not related. Also they are from respectable sites, like GMG and PCgamer.
I apologize for causing the false alarm. i will remove that sentence from my previous post.

Well that's ok. But do take precautions that your steam isn't 'hacked' again. :)

Happy playing.
 
I got back my steam account 2 days back. None of my games or items are missing as per my knowledge. I did not expect it to be resolved so quickly...

Yep don't download any files which you get spammed. I think whoever clicks it automatically sends it to everyone on their friend list.

Scan for malwares and viruses.. Change your steam password and email password from another PC. If you dont have any steam items or gifts, then you are safe though :)

The first thing I ask when someone gives me a link is WTF is this ?? If the person is able to reply then OK, or I just ignore it.
As for spammers, I don't really get that many. :D Only 1 or 2 times I guess.
