It seems I got banned after launching the game after I had used the program ( was outside on steam and confirmed I had gotten the tux) I looked up on VAC Banned.com and it showed that it scanned my status as VAC Banned as of : 2013-02-16 02:53:37 Which is when I launched the game. I feel stupid for doing it only for a penguin, but I guess that's karma for ya :P
VAC Bans: For when trusting someone with your account is safer than doing it yourself.
And that's what happens when you are too lazy to set up a simple virtual machine.
Anyone else unable to connect to steam?
how long are we talking about wiht these bans?
Thank God I didn't use this then. Gonna have to figure out how to install this 64 bit Ubuntu iso. Like I said, I don't know shit about installing/multiple operating systems.
Wait so they're gonna ban everyone who used it?
I didn't run the game while using this, I simply restarted Steam and ran TF2.
Anyone else who used this been vac-banned then? Because its really unlikely this would happen.
how did they know
one of us is a traitor (or a valve employee)
It doesn't search your external processes for hacks; it's not punkbuster.
On top of that, you wouldn't gain much by running it with either TF2 or Steam running, as the program will log off your old session, since it acts like a Steam client (think connecting to your account from another computer).

If you're too lazy to install Linux and you're comfortable with giving a stranger your account details, feel free to PM me. I'll be online for the next hour or so.
I too can help. Now.
I'm not vac banned on any of the accounts I used the tool on. I used the original one that name changed on one of my idles, and my edited one on another. No vac bans. Proof:
You guys didn't seriously use the tool with Steam or TF2 already running, did you?
For an opposing viewpoint, I have had 0 complications with the 64 bit version of ubuntu.
I knew BIT.TRIP back in 2009. I feel really indie for that.
but i'm not
still, good memories with that series. c:
Why exactly are people worrying about using SAM? Also, is there something new to unlock with it?
WHy do I feel they're going to have a cheaters lamenent item for anyone who didn't use that program?
This is to promote linux guys. The least you could do is try.

VAC bans aren't instant. They take weeks to come into effect. So, we won't know if the program is bannable for at least a week or more. He had to have gotten banned from something else.
