This week Valve has added a new level of protection for user of their Steam Trading Cards service with the addition of a new security update that has added a new captcha field to make sure that a human is present at trades and not a bot.
Valve has added the new captcha field as part of the confirmation process within Steam Trading Cards process, in an attempt to prevent malware that many of found its way onto users machines from making trades on their behalf.
Valve understands that the inclusion of the new captcha field has been a little disrupting for users and explains more over on the official Steam Trading Cards Group community website :
“We know it’s a bit of a hassle, and we don’t like making trading harder for users, but we do expect it to significantly help customers who are tricked into downloading and running malware from losing their items. We’ve excluded a few of the existing third-party trading services from this requirement so they can continue to function. If you have any suggestions on the trading process please let us know. Thanks.”
