Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Xbox Live Matchmaking on Red Alert
Written Wednesday, April 27, 2011 By Richard Walker
View author's profile

It's not just the PlayStation Network that's been having problems it seems, as Microsoft has issued a service alert warning of 'phishing attempts' while playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, showing that Xbox Live hasn't been without its problems, although this is a small raisin of an issue compared to the gigantic PSN watermelon-sized problem causing a service outage.

So, it's nothing to get too worried about. More a warning to stay vigilant when it comes to receiving messages across Xbox Live. If it seems dodgy, chances are it probably is dodgy.

"Users may receive potential phishing attempts via title specific messaging while playing Modern Warfare 2," warns the service alert on the Xbox Live Status page. "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".

If you receive odd messages while playing Modern Warfare 2, ignore them, as they may be after personal information like passwords and such. Now, as you were...

Shit! I just got that email from PSN. I have to give them a call and maybe get some identity theft protection in place. for $10 a month seems like cheap way to get out possibility of some huge trouble. Good thing I don't play MW2 anymore. Have enough to worry about as it is.

Sounds like its not really a technical issue? More a bunch of users trying to get information out of gamers... you would hope that 360 gamers would be smart enough not to give out passwords and personal information via email... (which is basically what live messaging is). Its not like the PSN issue where user data has been stolen...

@5 its just phishing. Even security hardened email providers cannot stop every instance of phishing. Dont answer sketchy messages and youre fine. Xbox has not allowed them to access your credit card info, you'll be alright

Is it just me, or has this sort of thing (though more trying to scam for Microsoft Points to get into '10th prestige lobbies' or 'ultimate team glitches' than personal info) been around for ages? Not just with MW2, but with games like FIFA and such?

Some crappy phishing messages on MW2 compared to somebody stealing, what is it, 70 million users details over an entire network?

I think rather than comparing a raisin to watermelon it would be closer comparing a raisin to the rest of the Earth.

A neutrino and a quark compared to ice cream and a movie. Way smaller and not even the same subject. The PSN's problems are vastly different than getting shady messages in a game, since anyone can get shady messages in a game. But as to the PSN, that's a different matter.

This has been a constant part of mw2 for the last year or so. Almost every game without fail myself and members of my party get a message from a random player asking for .... msp for .... hacked. We have turned it into a game of guessing how much msp they want. We even messed around with one who was "kind" enough to either do it for 1200 msp or for free if we let him recover our account. I had my laptop up so replied with a fake email and 38 character password in the hope to waste his time putting it in on xbox.

These losers need to get a life. If you need to scam a bunch of fellow gamers online you are just pathetic.

As far as the recent problems with the PSN are concerned, sorry PS3 users that really sucks. Regardless of what system you use you shouldn't have to deal with shit like that. On the other hand though, just goes to show, you get what you pay for.

And lol at #18. MW2 a perfect game? This stuff has been going on for ages in that online community. That's what happens when you never bother to patch a game. At least Treyarch supports their products.

I like the comparison of a PSN to a raisin, and XBOX LIVE to a watermelon. A watermelon is a large, succulent fruit full of sweet, mouth-watery goodness... and can satisfy many people. A raisin is a dried-up grape that has no juice and leaves many people wanting more, but only being disappointed!

@#27 You think this sort of shit could not happen on 360? You assume a lot, sir. All I can hope is Sony will now implement better protection. I sure hope this never happens to my 360 account, but can't rule out possibility. Saying that PS3 worse because it's cheaper is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

imo phishing on a specific game vs. PSN problem: Uncomparable.

besides, phishing 10th prestige for points lobbies have been there on MW2 for months. I dont know how microsoft will solve them unless they disable the ability to send messages.

@32 At what point did I say this couldn't happen on the 360? When did I say the PS3 is worse because it's cheaper? Don't put words in my mouth. I would be willing to say that the 360 has better protection because I deal in reality, not in the hypothetical. This happened to the PSN not Xbox Live. I even expressed regret at what happened. All I said is you get what you pay for. I believe you are the one doing all the assuming here sir.

@ 26 - A lot of people aren't quite as scammer savvy. I fell victim to a credit card scam years back. You live and learn. Now everything I apply for or register with is a major company and I do everything via secure network and when it comes to credit card/bank info - Paypal is the most secure.

@42 You said yourself it's not related. I'm talking standard PSN vs Xbox Live. I don't care about freebies and deals, I care about security, efficiency, and performance. Perhaps you should read about PSN's non-existent encryption of credit card data. We pay for a premium service with Xbox Live, and it has yet to not live up to that. Sony didn't even bother to admit what was going on at first. You are free to disagree but to call it the dumbest thing you ever heard is ridiculous. Do you hang out constantly with MENSA members or something?

MESSAGE TO ALL FRIENDS AND RECENT PLAYERS... go fuck yourself. I immediately stop and delete any message that begins like that. I'm sick of this crap... Modern Warfare is broken enough thanks to assholes who exploit every little problem in the game, but no, keep recruiting for tenth prestige lobbies. Or even better, try to get a hold of passwords. God a lot of people on Modern Warfare deserve to have a bullet or two come through their TV screen.

Aw look at all you wishy washies. "It's the PSN" "It's IW and MW's fault". People getting hacked and identity theft has been around long before the internet even bred the nano-idea. In this day and age, you could get hacked opening a box of cereal. It's not just one game or one console. Instead of throwing the slap-fest at each other, how about you piss and moan about the assholes who are actaully doin the hacking. Newsflash - It's not b/c it's Xbox or's bc THEY CAN. Therefore they will. Quit your bitching people and move on. The protection is pretty simple: 1. Don't open/answer messages from unknowns. 2. Best keep personal financial records off the grid. 3. Finger pointing begets more finger pointing. If there's nothing you can literally do to stop this hackery, then move on please.

I think Microsoft just didn't want PSN overshadowing them for something so they just threw phishing out there. Its like a popularity contest at least you are being seen even if its bad.

Phishing has been around for ages and its not just MW2, its any game. People that give there information need to think first and not be so naive. Like others said this isn't really comparable, one can happen anywhere plus it has been happening for ages, then the other is hacked and everyone is affected by it.

Side note, people saying who plays this anymore, its 2nd most played behind black ops on the 360 so obviously a lot of people still play it. Plus Infinity Ward supported there game plenty, they were pretty quick with updates, but the reason they weren't as fast as Treyarch is they were all leaving the studio do to the lawsuit. Stop being fanboys and just get along with everyone.

Okay Im done.

Hackers are one of th emost disgusting and putrid examples of a human being there is. They take advantage of what there is, and they steal credit card numbers, shut down entire networks, and destroy people's experiences playing games. I just purchased Socom 4, and now I cannot play the great online because of these ignorant hackers. Honestly, can they not choose to do something progressive and successful in their lives? It pisses me off why they would do such things.

I've pretty much given up on the Modern Warfare franchise. CoD4 was epic; I thoroughly enjoyed that game. MW2 was fun until the game was compromised by hackers, glitches, and extreme balancing issues. MW3 will end up the same way, mark my words. It just seems that Call of Duty is the cesspool for these kinds of things. CoD3 was crap, but Black Ops is probably the most fun I've had on a CoD game since 4 - yet even it got boring.

On a side, why the hell wont Treyarch release Zombie maps by themselves? So aggravating! Especially with Danny Trejo being in this new one!

no one is comparing the severity of these issues, however I would like to throw out there that, at the mere whiff of a possible security breach of any kind MS immediately notified us, they didn't leave it 7 days before even suggesting there may have been a breach.

Scammers are a bunch of people who are looking for a free ride because they are to broke and don't want to get a job like the rest of world.....they will take advantage of any smuck who are willing so what im saying is ...those who play on psn are......smucks
at least xbox live owner are smart enough not to fall for crap like this

As far as mw2 And black ops are concerned ....both are fun and flawed love them or hate them ....they made money off of people like you and me and the next one will do same ....until battlefield 3 Comes out !!

I think when comes to scamming people out of money ...activision does a fine job of that!!

@70 Just cause you were first in line to accept the newest COD game doesn't mean your opinion is fact. I played Black Ops for 3 months and in my opinion it was a step back from MW2. There is still a good amount of people who play MW2 and enjoy it. I agree Halo is fun as well, but again just cause it's your opinion it's not fact, so stop acting like it is.

Lol @73. I randomly put MW2 back in during the time this was all going on. People were mass spamming text in places it shouldn't have been and whatnot. Never got any phising attempt messages though.

Played again last night and seems its all been fixed. Game is SOO much better than BLOPS.
