Xbox Live Phishing Problems

27 April, 2011 - 9:12 pm by

It would seem that all of the online services are suffering problems at the moment. With Sony being sued and facing huge fines from governments over the PlayStation Network crisis, Microsoft today confirmed that they are facing problems with fishing in messages for users whilst playing online games.

As part of a status alert on Xbox.com, the Xbox Live status has been amended to state the following:

“Users may receive potential fishing [sic] attempts via title specific messaging while playing Modern Warfare 2.

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.”

According to reports, all other functions of the Xbox Live and online services are currently working as normal. If you do notice anything strange, please be sure to inform Microsoft immediately.
