Game Banned

About a week ago I lost my account steam account, so I contacted steam and I got my account back and they said that my account was compromised. Now when I try to join any server on rust it says steam auth game banned. Is there any way to fix this cause I didn’t cheat and I don"t even know how to.

Being banned from EAC secured games purchased through Steam will result in a Game Ban status being added to your Steam profile. This has the same impact as a VAC ban status. Games cannot be moved from an EAC banned account to other accounts. You can still register and purchase new games on an EAC banned account. If you receive a ban for a game that has in-game items, your items cannot be transferred to a different account.

This same exact thing happened to me and i havent played for about 180 days. Does the game ban mean i’m HWID banned?

You can try again, you’ll see if it’s the case.
