It does seem that those with locked accounts are helped first (besides the certainty that nothing can get stolen that way), so if nothing else it seems to speed up the resolution process. Steam probably marks those as higher priority issues.

-----------------------------------

If you get hit by this, try to lock down the account quickly. Apparently items that do not go through the Steam community market are being drained (like for example Rocket League items). It also resulted in a VAC ban for Rust for someone, so try to stop it as quickly as possible if you do get your account stolen.

----------------------------------

lupuscaucasus also has his account stolen. In my list it seems quite a few people got it resolved already. It is mostly Fizz and lupuscaucasus (in my friendslist) who still need help to get their account back.

Update: Fizz got it resolved as well. In my friendlist it is now just Lupuscaucasus who still has a hijacked account.

It seems there is a new wave of hacking on Steam ; My brother had just his account stolen by someone pretending to be a Steam admin :/ He blocked his account, hope he could recover it -_-

Edit : Phew ! He finally recover his account !

I have also received "your" message and I have removed you from my friends list to not receive any more messages.

I hope Steam will solve it soon to add you again.

Same msg from girolamocastaldo (another account stoled?)
You do know you can keep friends but block them and they can't message you but still be on your friends list right?

Then when they get their account back you just unblock them.
