Xbox Entertainment Awards site has security breach.

Remember how we posted yesterday that Microsoft had announced its brand new Xbox Entertainment Awards? Well, if like me you voted, then chances are your security details are out in the wild.

MCV's Ben Parfitt first alerted me to the fact that my details were on there, while the site itself has also posted a screen-grab of the breach sent in by one of its readers. It shows the names of 2,892 entrants.


"We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the Xbox Entertainment Awards landing page and have taken the site offline while we investigate," says a standard response to the breach from Microsoft.


People visiting the page were free to delete or edit each voter's entry before it was taken down.

We'd recommend changing your password as a precaution.
