There is a password stealing malware being delivered through Google Drive accounts that steals Steam credentials. It is being spread through Steam's chat functionality. It's a shortened link that when clicked, sends you to an image file stored on Google Drive. It is in fact a .exe file and will steal your credentials when executed.

Most likely.  We saw several posts about problems with files from Steam a week ago, and @ handled them.  I believe he had the files marked bad before the news even was made public, but perhaps he can verify this?

Yeah we see loads of these, I went on a bit of a mission last month for all these Steam crackers/password stealers. 
Similar ones that we see:

PS3 Code generator

Thank you Roy!  I recalled some of your comments about this last week, but I figured getting it here straight from you would be best 🙂
