SONY'S US GAMER PORTAL has been compromised by hackers apparently attempting to wheedle credit card details out of hapless Playstation owners.
The pages affected are those promoting Sing Star Pop and God of War games for the PS2. Insecurity firm (not a bunch of ex-criminals turned good at all) Sophos is warning that the breach in security activates a pop-up which warns users that their computers are infected with a variety of horrible and possibly terminal digital diseases.
The trojan then does a fake HD scan and offers to fix the problem for you if you just hand over all of your credit card details. How kind. Where's my wallet?
The whole thing is, of course, a massive scam and if you're dumb enough to enter your highly secret information then you deserve everything you get... or more accurately, lose. µ
