The Sun's cabal of sleazy liars hate being dismissed, and when they've got an axe to grind, they've demonstrated they'll pursue their victims with frightening obsession. Microsoft is the latest target, with the tabloid accusing it of a "cover up" after earlier claims of Xbox Live hack attacks were brushed off. 

"Dozens of angry readers contacted [us] to tell how crooks bought Microsoft Points on their accounts to trade on to users in countries like China, Nigeria and Russia -- even though they didn't pass on any personal details or visit phishing websites." said the Sun, ignoring the fact that nobody would admit to being stupid enough to hand their personal details to a phisher. 

The Sun backed up its "exclusive" story by taking old news reports from October, concerning FIFA 12 and phishing attempts committed on Xbox Live and EA.com. Wow, that's an amazing "exclusive" there!

Microsoft has yet again denied that Xbox Live has been hacked, but stated that it's examining Xbox Live refund policies for those who have been phished. Meanwhile, the Sun will continue to do what it does best -- be shit. 

Now The Sun claims 'Xbox fraud cover up'... But it's still old news [CVG]
