Cancel password/email changes in confirmation email
Recently someone stole my account (now I have it back). I noticed it when a mail arrived into my email inbox folder saying that someone changed my email (also changed my password after it), but these messages don't come with a "cancel" feature.

Could it be implemented a "Someone changed your account info, if wasn't you click here to cancel the changes and replace your password. this link will remain active for 24 hours." feature?

Unless you specifically gave them your SteamGuard code then they need access to your email account in order to log in with your account. So they'd see the email...

I had Steam guard disabled. In any case, it's another security measure to add.

If you had SteamGuard enabled then the above likely would have not been an issue.

You should REALLY REALLY Read this over very very carefully. Especially be wary of phishing scams as that is the primary vector for account hijacks.
