The lights are on
Sony's been under fire lately for a security breach (and subsequent shutdown) of its PlayStation Network and the possibility that tens of millions of users may have had their personal information compromised. Microsoft has issued an alert related to Modern Warfare 2 that's on a significantly smaller scale, but that users should be aware of.
A message on the Xbox Live support page is warning users to be aware of phishing attempts in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The post says that the attempts have been made through title specific messages in the game. Microsoft says that the issue is being worked on, which has been confirmed by Infinity Ward's creative strategist, Robert Bowling. Bowling posted a message on Twitter saying that a patch is currently going through QA and testing at Activision, and it will go live once Microsoft approves it.
As Microsoft has said, don't give anyone your personal account information.

Will this never end? Probably not, stupid question. Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about it right now since I don't play MW2 anymore.
I'm not sure why people are dumb enough to give out their personal information. I for one don't even give stores my phone number when they ask for it.
isnt it like the first thing just about every internet group anywhere tells you to not give out personal info or your password and that the company themselves will never ask for it?
hopefully this will fix the effing "infection" lobbies or whatever. i can't join a game anymore with some kind of text popping across my screen and covering half of it up with some hack crap.
gee thank you so much for telling us what the attempts would look like so we would no what to watch 4. I have mw2 for today and tomorrow and looks like I wont be playing online -_-
What is with people not letting other people play games in peace? Whether your on PSN or XBLA, people just want to ruin your day and be jerks.
I warned Microsoft about this!!! Yay to me!!!!
Some day parents are going to tell their kids not to give away their account information like they would tell a kid not to get in a car with a stranger or give away their address.
ppl are just stupid
