PSA: Look out for Phishing in Modern Warfare 2
A service alert just popped up on the Xbox Live Status page warning players of Modern Warfare 2 that they may receive ‘potential phishing attempts’ through messages. Microsoft are currently working on fixing the problem. If by any chance you still play Modern Warfare 2 then be careful and vigilant.
The Xbox Live service itself is said to be unaffected and normal users should not experience any problems while using the service. I don’t know quite how you would be scammed by phishers on Xbox Live of all places. and I’m not going to make a joke about the intelligence of Modern Warfare 2 players, but regardless, it’s important to know.
