Xbox users targeted in web scam

Xbox Live users are being urged to check their accounts after some say they were scammed by a fake email.

The phishing attack sent users to a fake website where they were asked to input personal details like addresses, emails and credit card details.

Microsoft is investigating but doesn’t know how many users are affected.

“We take the security of the Xbox Live service seriously and work to improve it against evolving threats,” a Microsoft spokesman said.

“Very occasionally, though, we are contacted by members regarding alleged unauthorized access to their accounts by outside individuals.

“We work closely with impacted members directly to resolve any unauthorized changes to their accounts and, as always, highly recommend all Xbox Live users follow our account security guidance in order to protect their account details.”

Microsoft says there is advice on its website about staying safe online but advises that people should never give out passwords or email addresses.
