Around a month ago, Xbox Live users were alerted to a phishing scam on popular online title Modern Warfare 2. You’d think this was the work of nefarious group, but no, it was a single perpetrator. Who Microsoft is now working with?
According to Microsoft’s Paul Rellis, the culprit responsible has been caught, and discovered to be a… 14-year-old Irish kid. What’s more, instead of punishing the boy or turning him over to the law, Rellis says that Microsoft is “working with the teenager to develop his talent” in an attempt to “help him use his skills for legitimate purposes”.
If the Jason Bourne of the future has an Irish accent, at least we’ll know where he got his start.
