I'm trying to help a friend.
As the title above says, i'm trying to help my friend that got ban vac because he borrowed he's cs:go on family share... i was wondering if its right, because there no place saying that we can be baned or VAC baned because of a family share using ilegal programs...

He's so sad about it, because he never cheated on he's life and now he got a VAC ban for someone else fault...

I'm sorry about my english, but i'm from brazil and i don't speak english very well, i hope you all understand what i'm saying here, he tryed to contact suport steam but i belive that he will not be helped :(

its in the faq maybe u want to reread it.

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=3784-QLBM-5731&l=english

Will I be punished for any cheating or fraud conducted by other users while playing my games?

Your Family Sharing privileges may be revoked and your account may even be VAC banned if your library is used by others to conduct cheating or fraud. We recommend you only authorize familiar Steam Accounts and familiar computers you know to be secure. And as always, never give your password to anyone.
Any game with a VAC ban will not be able to be shared.

He should get mad at someone in his family then, because they're the ones that abusesd his trust.

It would be common sense, even if it wasn't in the FAQ

It's not in the VAC FAQ, but as Malek has said it's in the SFS FAQ.

All he can do is make the jerk who got him banned buy him another copy for a different account.

I believe lots of people shared their accounts on throw away accounts via family sharing just for the sole propose of cheating and only realise later that both accounts can get a ban.

That's what happens when you think you've found a loophole in the rules you haven't even taken the time to read
People seems to be never learning... To not SHARE You account to ANYONE. Not even family members since its not excuses and i seeing theses exduses here many time. It wont work.
