Severe local 0-Day escalation exploit found in Steam Client Services

Well, reading the article and reading the comments - which are quite well informed - show that this is a pretty bad thing.

Steer clear of those indie apps from far off lands made by software houses you’ve never heard of…


I don’t really get it why that was rejected so many times.
This would be a thing that should be immediatelly fixed.

yeah, agreed - seems very narrow minded. Sure, it’s not a direct attack over a network - but a bad app or malware focus on this weakness could cause absolute havoc.

As one of the comments said, if Valve ignore it, then MS is going to have to step in as it compromises their OS security features.
