Microsoft claims Xbox Live security wasn't breached

Posted on Friday, March 23 2007 @ 02:08:51 CET by

Microsoft states it found no evidence of a security breach on its Xbox Live online gaming services. They say gamers who had problems with their accounts were probably duped into giving up account details to fraudsters:
"There have been a few isolated incidents where malicious users have been attempting to draw personal information from unsuspecting users and use it to gain access to their Live account," the company said in a statement.

The statement comes a day after Microsoft said it would investigate possible fraud on its Xbox Live and Bungie.net online gaming properties. Gamers had reported that their Xbox Live accounts were hijacked and their credit cards used to buy "Microsoft Points," the virtual currency on Xbox Live, which has more than 6 million users.

"We have looked into the situation and found no evidence of any compromise of the security of Bungie.net or our Live network," Microsoft said in the statement. It added that, to its knowledge, no credit card or other personal information was exposed.
