Microsoft is apparently more competitive than we thought. As Sony grabs headlines for its failure to keep personal details safe on PlayStation Network, Microsoft has stole itself a bit of the security failure pie, warning players of a phishing scam that's hit Modern Warfare 2.
"Users may receive potential phishing attempts via title specific messaging while playing Modern Warfare 2," stated the company. "We are aware of the problem and are working to resolve the issue. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience."
Wow, Microsoft. You just can't let Sony have anything, can you?
While not quite as bad a situation, those of you who still play Modern Warfare 2 should be on the lookout just in case. Of course, you shouldn't be responding to Xbox Live messages with personal information anyway, so if you have a brain, you'll be safe!
