The phishing site (hosted in Timor-Leste) collects Xbox user’s account information (which is Windows Live E-mail address and Password). These Xbox Live accounts are then traded for real world cash (on sites such as e-bay).
You may be phished via:
– Email messages that appear to be from a coworker or friend with links to a web site or asking for information about you or your account(s)
– An instant message that appear to come from someone in your friends list with a link to a web site
– An email appearing to come from XBOX or Microsoft
– A “Spoof” web site, pretending to be an Xbox LIVE website with a Windows Live ID login page
Single most important thing to remember is: Do not reveal your login credentials or other information about you or your account(s).
So if you are an Xbox user, beware!!
