PlayStation Web site hacked: SingStar fans are at risk!

Sony’s US Gamer Portal site has allegedly been hacked and now plays host to a trojan that is attempting to steal the credit card details of those visiting the SingStar and God of War promotional pages.

It’s a very by-the-book scam — the trojan activates a pop-up warning you of the deadly diseases your computer has contracted, performs a fake system scan and then kindly offers to fix all your problems if you hand over your credit card information. Also, if you help this Albanian millionaire (who writes in broken English) transfer all his funds to the US, you will be in line for a significant cut of the fortune. 

What a lovely way to celebrate the release of 2.40, right?
