Can you ID this screw?

I went to the hardware store to get a bit for my drill to remove some broken steps from my deck. They weren't able to ID this and told me it looked like a stripped phillips. I've since verified that isn't the case. Can anyone tell me what this is called?

It's not a Robertson , looks like some kind of proprietary decking screw alternately it could be some sort of security screw

Thanks for all of the replies. I checked into this square drive that newertoy mentioned but it looks more rectangular than a robertson but still not the same as this. Or am I looking at the wrong thing?

It's not a Robertson

Is the whole deck screwed off with these screws ?
