Valve bot

Post by Fennris » Thu Jun 17, 2010 5:21 pm

Anyone know what this Valve bot is doing?
Whenever I view a thread with someones steam info in their sig I get scanned by this IP address 63.228.223.100:80 tcp connection.
I don´t use steam at all and this is a temporary pc I whipped up at work so I don´t think its anything I have picked up.
Any clues?
Is Valve using these sigs to backdoor into private forums?

No idea why you are getting scanned. You are seeing that connection when you view my signature because I'm *cough* hot-linking *cough* the Steam image as I couldn't find another one to use.
