Phishers have been able to trick some gamers into disclosing personal details
Some Microsoft Xbox Live users have been targeted by scammers in a phishing attack.
Though Microsoft sources denied that Xbox Live had been hacked, phishers have been able to trick some gamers into disclosing personal details like addresses, emails and credit card information.
Denying any breach to the security of the users of Xbox Live service, Microsoft said, "In this case, a number of Xbox Live members appear to have recently been victim of malicious ‘phishing’ scams."
Microsoft has warned people against opening unsolicited e-mails because the messages may contain spyware or malware that can compromise their personal information.
Microsoft said it has been working closely with Xbox Live users to investigate and resolve any unauthorised changes to their accounts resulting from phishing scams.
