Microsoft may be sweating out a possible rehash of Sony’s PlayStation Network nightmare from earlier this year if an anonymous posting of dozens of purported Xbox Live gamertags and passwords is what it claims to be. An Xbox dump was posted Monday that contains more than 90 supposed gamertags, most with associated email addresses and passwords. A spokesperson from Microsoft gave the following statement.
“We do not have any evidence the Xbox Live service has been compromised. We take the security of our service seriously and work on an ongoing basis to improve it against evolving threats. However, we are aware that phishing attackers will occasionally post small lists of victim on public channels, and we will work directly with the impacted members to resolve any unauthorized changes to their accounts. As always, we highly recommend our members follow the Xbox Live Account Security guidance provided at www.xbox.com/security to protect your account.“
