Exclamation Steam Hijack! (Important Heads up)

There is a message going round on Steam that looks like this :-
"Hi.I want to trade with you this item http://p1cturupload.com/screenshot.jpg"

This link tries to auto download a .scr file (screensaver executable) which spams everyone else in your friends list the same message.

It is unknown if this steals account information or if it is malicious. But there are rumors that it steals account information. It has been logged on VirusTotal here.

Just a heads up fellas, if you see this from your friends. Don't click it!
