Valve announces Steam Guard security system

Protect against gargoyles, haxors, script kiddies and other surprisingly non-made-up threats

Above: Just two of the products not to purchase if you want to enjoy Steam Guard's protection

Users wanting to beef up their Steam security should beware they don't end up with the wrong Steam Guard. Valve's Steam Guard does not provide vaporized sinus cleansing (unlike the Vicks Steam Guard); neither does it sterilize microwave ovens (unlike the Munchkin Steam Guard). Hell, just leave it to Valve to bring the service to you. The company currently provides the service for third parties to incorporate into their Steam apps, reducing Friend Code-esque and user-end headaches altogether. Thank Gabe for that, eh?
