Some Xbox Live users targeted in online phishing scam

BBC News says: "Xbox Live users are being urged to check their accounts after some say they were scammed by a fake email.

The phishing attack sent users to a fake website where they were asked to input personal details like addresses, emails and credit card details."

The story is too old to be commented.

'fake website where they were asked to input personal details like addresses, emails and credit card details'

Anyone who falls for these scams deserves to have their details stolen.

EVERY SINGLE F*CKING COMPANY STATES "WE WILL NOT ASK YOU FOR YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS, CREDIT CARD DETAILS, LOGIN DETAILS VIA EMAIL"

You may think its a bit harsh but in all fairness, you can't teach common sense.

I was wondering why this hadn't appeared on here sooner....it was on the front page of the Sun.

I know it wasn't hacked but still......

PS3....MASSIVE thing about it

Xbox 360...hardly nothing on it.

Your comparing the PSN hacking which brought down the whole service for more than a month to a few stupid people who use fake sites and got scammed.

the hack didnt bring psn down u moron. do people still belive this pos info? Sony brought it down so the coul investigate and improve their average security

"Xbox 360...hardly nothing on it"-well, maybe cus there isn't anything to it. Do you really believe that if/when live is actually hacked and thousands of customers become vulnerable (through no fault of their own) that thousands of ps3 fan boys wont collectively jizz in their pants? Believe me...they will.

Course theres something to it....it's news

Remember a couple of days ago, the PS3 goes down for like an hour and N4G is flooded with "downtime" articles, some suggesting another hack..........basicaly looking for any little bits of info to put Sony and the PS3 in a negativelight, yet something like this which has found it's way even in todays newspapers dosen't even get a say on here...

It's still bad anyway you look at it so don't try and justify it

dark-hollow2213d ago
