As per the title steam has randomly invited 23~ players into a steam group chat without any user input on my part, as of the moment I have been left confused.

People were being added while I was away, no 2factor authentication was requested, and the people seem to have been selected at random since I have not played with some of these players recently, some of which I have not played with or against for over an year. Windows defender comes back clean.

Has anyone seen this before? If not then be aware and please report if it does occur to others so that we can figure out how it's happening.

Or you can make a bug report on steam and get it fixed?

Does it hurt trying to collect information about the issue that I am having so that I can report it more accurately? I have no idea why or how this has happened, I was hoping others would have ideas or answers that they could provide so that I can take the appropriate course of action.

Not really, if this is a rare occurance (which it could be) you may not be able to find more information. As a developer, if I had an issue pop up with a lot or very little information, I still would find the bug and fix it. If steam is doing it random, then it ccould mean there's an exploit, a system bug, or someone's taking over your account.

This could also happen unintentially I think, though I never had this issue before straight out like this instance.
