News of Kaspersky Tracking Next Gen Console Attacks and Viruses Entirely False

Ryan Kerns from GameSkinny brings you the truth. If you happen to see the story on the main page of N4G right now about how there are 34k daily attacks on PS4 and Xbox One, you are reading a LIE. It seems nobody bothered to actually research the source article, which is a total fabrication by Mark Huffman of ConsumerAffairs. I have uncovered the actual press release from Kaspersky that quotes those attacks and malware as ON PC ONLY. (Industry, PS4, Xbox One)

thought that article seemed a little ridiculous. I've never heard of a virus affecting any gaming console hell the browser doesn't even support plugins anymore (ruining my ability to watch movies on my ps3...)

Yeah but if you flat out lie about something and cause a panic, what good does that do? I've let Kaspersky know about the article and I also contacted ConsumerReport about their writer falsifying information.
